Safe Havens: Information session for prospective hosts
15th July 2021 | 11:00 am - 12:00 pmFree
Safe Havens is an innovative project supporting victims and survivors of domestic abuse to access safe, accomodation quickly, provided by trained, volunteer hosts and supported by a dedicated IDAS worker. The initiative builds on a long history of people hosting families and individuals in their homes while they begin to rebuild their lives.
Being a Safe Havens host is an opportunity to guide and support a person through challenging times. Hosting a guest who has experienced domestic abuse is incredibly rewarding. Hosts can assist the guest in many ways to reach their potential and future goals. Being with a trained host in a host’s own home, offers guidance and support whilst the guest plans for their safer future, free from abuse and violence.
If you are interested in offering guests short periods of respite and relief in your home, please email Mel.Milner@idas.org.uk for further information.
