Covid-19 Update. 03/04/2020 We remain open for current clients, new referrals and queries, including for partner and family support. All work is currently being undertaken by video call. Referrals and queries are being taken by email or telephone call.
Safer Lives take self-referrals only, but as a professional, you might want to signpost people to us. Please call or email us if you need to know more about our services – we are always happy to talk to you.
We encourage good working relationships with professionals in a number of sectors including policing, criminal and family law, health services, criminal justice, child safeguarding, education and research sectors, and offer training and consultancy services on how to effectively engage and work with people who exhibit harmful sexual behaviours.
We work with academic partners in both evaluating the effectiveness of our services in preventing suicides and supporting healthy sexual behaviours, and in research to establish an improving understanding of our client group’s needs and how to work most with them. We are particularly proud in achieving a reduction in suicides - from around 1 in 27 in our standard client group, to one in around 400 Safer Lives clients.
We are frequent conference workshop contributors and speakers. We are members of NOTA (the National Organisation for the Treatment of Abusers) and are key in convening NOTA meetings for Yorkshire and the Humber, and central to the National Annual Conference which is in Leeds in 2020.
