#SafeAtHome for Christmas


At SafeLives, we believe that no one should have to leave their home – leaving behind friends, family and the things they treasure – because of domestic abuse.

That's why this Christmas we've asked some familiar faces on Instagram to help us share this message, and get people talking about what being #SafeAtHome looks and feels like. We're asking people to build gingerbread houses as a symbol of what it means to be #SafeAtHome.

What you can do

Please help us keep families safe at home this Christmas by doing three things:

1. Give a donation. Anything you can give, large or small, will be so appreciated.

2. Share pictures of your gingerbread creations on social media, tagging us and using #SafeAtHome. Alternatively, post a picture of yourself from a Christmas gone by and say what #SafeAtHome means to you. 

3. Share this fundraising message with friends/family members by tagging them in the comments of our Instagram posts - which you can find on @Safelives_ 

Thank you. Together, we can end domestic abuse for everyone and for good.
