Want to work with us to end domestic abuse, for good? Join us at SafeLives.

Working at SafeLives is more than just a job. Every member of our staff team knows that their work has a direct impact on making more families safe from domestic abuse.

SafeLives' associate consultants work with us to deliver exciting projects across the country. We're always on the look out for new consultants to join our team - if you're interested in becoming a SafeLives associate, get in touch.

SafeLives is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children, young people and vulnerable adults and expects all staff, volunteers and associated parties to share this commitment.

We have signed up to The Disability Confident Scheme, which supports employers to make the most of the talents disabled people can bring to their workplace. The scheme is designed to help us successfully recruit and retain disabled people and those with health conditions. 

We have also signed up to The Halo Code for workplaces. Our workplace champions the right of staff to embrace all Afro-hairstyles. We acknowledge that Afro-textured hair is an important part of our Black employees' racial, ethnic, cultural and religious identities, and requires specific styling for hair health and maintenance. 

Please also look at our equity, equality, diversity and inclusion action plan. SafeLives holds significant influence and therefore responsibility too. Our plan sets out concrete actions we'll be taking in 2020/21.
