Who we are

No appointment or referral is needed, just drop in, everyone is welcome.
What is the Adults’ Safe Haven
The Adults’ Safe Haven is for adults (aged over 18) needing immediate help at a time of crisis. We offer non-judgemental advice, supporting you to develop short term crisis coping strategies during your time of distress. We can also build your knowledge and understanding of other (longer term) support to help you manage your mental health, emotional wellbeing, and helping to reduce the likelihood of reaching crisis point again.
To self refer, you will need to attend (or phone) the Safe Haven where you will be met by a member of our friendly team who will complete a referral form with you.
We have a crisis Freephone number during Safe Haven opening hours if you cannot attend: 0300 3031560
