Bath Safe House
We have one safe house that can house up to 8 families at any one time. The housing is direct access and women and children can move in immediately and there is an out of hours service that can be accessed through the police. Families can stay for up to six months.
Each woman has a key worker offering emotional and practical support and every child has their own key worker offering therapeutic play. While they are with us they are given support with safety, benefits, legal options, housing and custody of the children.
Where possible, when families move on, we offer resettlement support to enable them to settle into their new communities. For the women who return to their partners we encourage them to keep in touch in case they need to use a safe house again.
For those that we cannot help because we are full we will, where possible, find alternative safe housing outside of Bath.
