Our vision and values

SafeLives domestic violence vision and valuesDomestic abuse is unacceptable. It’s a denial of human rights. But together, we can end domestic abuse, and build a society where every family is safe.

Our ambitions

We need:

  • The right resources at the right time to make individuals and families safe, sooner.
  • To understand the whole picture for an individual and family, to give an effective response. 
  • To stop asking "Why doesn't she leave?" and start asking "Why doesn't he stop?"​


Our values

Day-to-day, our staff are guided by our values – rigour, humanity and courage. Together these express SafeLives’ way of working that is guided by the evidence, practical and independent, and puts family safety at the heart of everything we do.
