Sometimes we come across an article that really strikes a chord with our supporters and website visitors. Recently we shared an article on our Facebook page outlining tactics that can be used in an abusive relationship and received a lot of feedback on it. We’d love to hear any comments you’ve got and if you’re concerned that you or a friend or family member may be experiencing abuse please do call us on 721999 to talk it through. We’re always available for information and support.
Sometimes we receive calls from people who desperately need to escape an abusive situation but are unable to find somewhere to go with their beloved pets. Very often our clients tell us that their pets have kept them going when times are very hard and they fear their pet may be in danger if left behind.
We have received the excellent news that Safer has been chosen by one of the Channel Islands Student Business Challenge teams, Carpe Diem Café, to benefit from their efforts. The Carpe Diem team will be producing cakes, cookies and other baked goods along with various hot and cold drinks to sell in the Market Square on Saturday 28 January from 9am until 5pm. They will also be attending a pitch day in the Market Square on Saturday 11 February which will see them joined by this year’s other teams.
On Tuesday 10 January in Jersey and Thursday 12 January in Guernsey the Channel Islands Student Business Challenge kicked off with an official launch,
The New Year is well underway now and Safer staff and volunteers are as busy as ever. We are all very much looking forward to getting the chance to put on our glad rags and dancing shoes to enjoy a exciting evening of food, fun and dancing at the All You Need is Love Ball at St Pierre Park Hotel on Friday 3rd February. We can squeeze in a couple more tables if you’d like to join us to raise money for domestic abuse services. Email email@example.com to reserve your table. See you there!
Safer’s elves have been very busy sorting through all of the food, toys and gifts so generously donated by our wonderful supporters, both individuals and companies. We would especially like to thank the Friends of Safer for helping us to ensure that our clients and their families get the Christmas they deserve.
This can be a very difficult and distressing time of year for those experiencing domestic abuse and our staff will be on hand over the Christmas period on telephone number 01481 721999.
May we wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

The Duke of Richmond Hotel is hosting a Halloween Ball and rather spookily they have said they will donate £10 to everyone who books a ticket and mentions “Friends of Safer”!
It’s almost Halloween so why not make your Halloween party this year into a spook-tacular occasion with us. We have an evening full of tricks and treats. You will be welcomed with a Bloody Vampire Punch followed by a three-course dining experience including phantom pan roasted fillet, creepy confit and Barbary duck leg. There will be live entertainment throughout the evening and a not to be missed prizes being awarded for best make-up,
This year the popular Walk a Mile in Their Shoes has been expanded and incorporated into the 16 Days of Action. The walk will start at Salerie Carpark, as usual, but this year we are being more inclusive, letting women and girls join in.
We also want to challenge you a bit more so have included the Walk a Mile in Their Shoes as a group walk for everyone entered into the 16 Days of Action. This group event starts at 10 am at the Salarie carpark and will finish at Castle Cornet on Saturday 26th November 2016.
Walk a mile every day or up to 16 miles in one day and get into action to raise money for Safer, the Bailiwick’s domestic abuse charity.
We are looking for teams and individuals of any age or gender to enter this event. You could be a team of work colleagues, deputies, school mates, friends, family, or a team from your club or church, etc. You do not have to be in a team…you can go it alone to shed some pounds before Christmas and raise some pounds for Safer at the same time!
