  • What are Safe Rooms

    In recent years, the issue of domestic violence has gained greater attention, as people around the world have become more aware of the devastating impact it can have on individuals, families, and communities. In response to this growing problem, many organisations have been working to provide support and resources for victims of domestic violence.


    One such initiative is the development of Safe Rooms, which are dedicated spaces in public places like shopping centres where victims of domestic violence can seek refuge and support.


    Safe Rooms are designed to provide a safe haven for victims of domestic violence, where they can access a range of services and support without fear of judgement or retaliation. These rooms are typically staffed by a caseworker who is trained to provide emotional support, practical assistance, and referrals to other services such as counselling and legal advice.


    Safe Rooms are a valuable resource for survivors of domestic violence, providing a safe, accessible, and personalised environment where they can access the support and assistance they need. By creating these spaces in public places, we can ensure that victims of domestic violence have the opportunity to seek help in a way that feels safe and comfortable for them, and to begin the process of rebuilding their lives. As we continue to work towards eradicating domestic violence, initiatives like Safe Rooms will play an important role in providing support and resources for those who have been affected.

    Safe and Supportive

    The primary goal of Safe Rooms is to create a space where victims of domestic violence can feel safe and supported, and where they can begin the process of rebuilding their lives. For many victims of domestic violence, the idea of seeking help can be daunting, and they may be reluctant to approach traditional support services for fear of being stigmatised or judged.

    Convenient and Accessible

    One of the key benefits of Safe Rooms is their convenience and accessibility. By locating Safe Rooms in public places such as shopping centers, victims of domestic violence can access support and assistance easily and quickly. This can be especially important in situations where victims are in immediate danger and need to find a safe place to go quickly.

    Personalised Support

    Another benefit of Safe Rooms is the personalised support they provide. Each victim of domestic violence has a unique set of needs and challenges, and the support they require may vary depending on their situation. Safe Rooms provide an opportunity for victims to receive individualised support and guidance from trained caseworkers, who can help them identify their needs and connect them with the appropriate services and resources.

    Discreet and confidential

    One important aspect of Safe Rooms is that they provide a discreet and confidential space for victims of domestic violence to seek help. This can be especially valuable in situations where the perpetrator is monitoring the victim's activities, such as tracking their movements or monitoring their phone calls and messages.
