Please read this statement to understand how our services will work during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Safety Net and COVID-19
These are challenging times at Safety Net but we will continue to work in partnership to deliver high-quality services to our service users.
We would like our stakeholders, partners, other professionals and service users to know that, as a service, we are still very much open and all staff have been set up to work remotely.
Professionals can refer using the online referral form on our website, and we are still taking self-referrals by telephone.
We believe it is vital that we play our part to help reduce the transmission of COVID-19, as such we will be contacting all service users this week to let them know that, although we will not be seeing them face-to-face in our offices, we will be offering 1:1 video or telephone sessions instead.
Our staff will do their utmost to support our communities and those who have been affected by rape, exploitation, sexual and domestic abuse across North and West Cumbria. As well as continuing with weekly therapeutic or support sessions we will also check that our clients are safe and have practical and emotional support in place and we will provide advice and signpost where necessary.
We will also regularly update our website and social media platforms with relevant information, advice and self-help guidance.
If you require any information or advice then just email, call or message us via our website.
Stay safe and let's all look after each other.
