The Safe Place initiative is a simple way for any organisation to provide information and signposting to anyone affected by domestic abuse

About this event

What is Safe Place?

Safe Place was launched by Onus on a regional basis in February 2011, and is supported by a diverse range of organisations, including sole traders, employers, community groups, schools and churches. Safe Place is an initiative offering information on the wide range of services available to anyone affected by domestic violence or abuse. Any organisation can become a Safe Place.

Following the information session you will have the opportunity to register your business, organisation or community group as a Safe Place and be provided with a supply of Safe Place resources. As a Safe Place you will display the Safe Place logo which indicates that information on services for anyone affected by domestic violence and abuse is available on the premises, organisations will not have to do anything beyond signposting people to the appropriate services.

Onus will provide information and support to all who sign up to the scheme.

Organiser Onus (NI) Ltd

Organiser of Onus Safe Place Webinar - Lisburn & Castlereagh City Council

Onus was established as a social enterprise by Women's Aid Antrim, Ballymena, Carrickfergus, Larne and Newtownabbey (ABCLN) in 2007 and offers specialist training and consultancy services on domestic violence or abuse.

In 2010 we launched our Workplace Charter on Domestic Violence, a bespoke accreditation scheme, to enable organisations, businesses, churches and communities, to be recognised for their support to anyone affected by domestic violence or abuse. Our range of supported pathways, empower communities to recognise and respond to anyone affected by domestic or sexual violence or abuse.


We believe that in order to create a society that has zero tolerance towards domestic violence or abuse, prevention and early intervention work is crucial. We don't provide direct support services to anyone living with domestic abuse, we aim to raise awareness and build capacity, to ensure anyone affected by domestic abuse is directed to support services, hence the name of our range of initiatives 'Pathways for Participation'.
