About this organisation
Stay Safe East is a human rights organisation of disabled people providing a unique service to Deaf and disabled victims and survivors of all forms of abuse: We provide training, consultancy and casework advice on disability, hate crime, domestic and sexual violence. We also work for changes in policy and practice. We advise the Metropolitan Police and other agencies on hate crime and violence against women and girls.
We provide long-term support to victims and survivors of domestic or sexual violence, hate crime, harassment and other abuse. Our services run is in Newham and Waltham Forest.
We will help you to be safer, to understand what has happened and to take control; we will help you to get action against the perpetrator(s) if that is what you want.
We are a holistic service and will see you through the journey from abuse to recovery and independence – we help with sorting housing, debts and benefits, applying for social care or mental health support, equipment or transport. Or we will just provide a safe space where you be listened to and can get emotional support. If your children are at risk of being taken from you, we will support you to deal with social services.
We will help you move on from abuse.
If you are a disabled women, you can get support through our women’s group and take part in outings.
We will be there for you for as long as you need us!
