Our News & Impact

“I now feel better that I have spoken to Safe Spaces, been honest & discussed my experience in my own way. I also feel that being listened to, given advice & support reflecting I can say I am content & want to move on from what I experienced. Thank you so much for your time & I am grateful I was able to tell my story to you.”

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, Church in Wales and the Catholic Church in England and 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.

We value and review all feedback received, as it helps us continue to shape a service that meets the needs of those who use it. Please email us at: SafeSpaces@FirstLight.org.uk for any feedback you have for us.
