The Safe at Home project helps to support residents at risk of post separation abuse by installing a CCTV device and solar lighting at their homes.
As well as providing reassurance, these measures can also provide evidence to Police to prevent further issues.
Safe at Home was set up as a not-for-profit organisation by Clarion resident Stacy Bradley, as she wanted to use her experience of post separation abuse to support others.
Clarion Futures has supported Safe at Home, alongside our contractors Equans, Wates Group and United Living, with a donation of £10,000.
Safe at Home launched last year and feedback on the service has been really positive:
“The installation was very quick, and the installers were very nice and instantly put me at ease.”
“I just wanted to say thank you for all your patience during the install, both for carrying out the works and taking the time to reassure me with the use of the camera. I feel that little bit safer in my own home now. I couldn’t recommend the service enough! Thank you!”
Referral is through specialist agencies, to support residents who are being re-housed due to domestic abuse and those who are experiencing post separation abuse.
Clarion are committed to supporting our residents, and working in partnership to make a difference for those who need it most.
For her work with Safe at Home, Stacy was shortlisted in the ‘Tenant of the Year’ category at this year’s Housing Heroes Awards which celebrate the achievements of women working in the housing sector.
