Who we are

Find out about SafeLives’ vision, our values, our people, and how we are run and funded.

SafeLives works with organisations across the UK to transform the response to domestic abuse, at a local, national, UK and societal level.

How we are run

Our Board of Trustees has overall responsibility for the governance of the charity. It does this by holding our Senior Leadership Team to account to ensure we achieve our strategic and charitable objectives. Our Senior Leadership Team – led by Ellen Miller, our Chief Executive – is responsible for SafeLives’ overall operational management.

We raise our money through donations and from charitable organisations and trusts. We get part of our income from government grants, as well as from fees for our training and consultancy services. You can read our most recent annual accounts report and financial statements below or view them on the Charity Commission website.

We’d like to thank everyone who supports the work of SafeLives, including our donors and supporters.
