About the Safe Spaces service

Safe Spaces is a free and independent support service, providing a confidential, personal and safe space for anyone who has been abused by someone in the Church or as a result of their relationship with the Church of England, the Catholic Church in England and Wales or the Church in Wales.

The concept for the service has come from survivors of church-related abuse. Survivors have been involved in designing the service, and in selecting which organisation should run it. This was decided in early 2020 and Victim Support was selected because of our experience in supporting survivors of abuse.

Victim Support have been commissioned to run this national service, providing remote support through our helpline and live chat service.
