Helping people address harmful sexual behaviours
Safer Lives was established in 2014 by three experienced and compassionate probation officers who specialised in addressing men's harmful sexual behaviours. We pride ourselves in being non-judgemental and in tailoring our support to the individual needs of our clients. We believe that by supporting men to understand their behaviour then together we gain better outcomes for them and their families, and achieve better safeguarding for children and other vulnerable people. Our experience is in working with individuals who have a wide range of problematic sexual behaviours, or have committed sexual offences. We are now sector-leading specialists in working with men who are under investigation for accessing indecent images of children or extreme pornography, online grooming, sexual communication with children, and arranging to meet with minors.
Our aims are:
To assist our clients to achieve and maintain safe sexual behaviours
To promote positive emotional well-being for our clients and safeguard them from suicide and stigma
To support safety for children, and resilience in family members and their family networks.
