Well-being and Safety

SCDA and our partner organisations run a range of services to help and support people who are at a vulnerable point in their lives or who may feel unsafe.

Safe from Harm is a service that can support you if you have been the victim of anti-social behaviour. To access our service you will need to be referred by one of our partners including Sussex Police or your local housing provider. They will ask you some questions to decide if we are the best service to support you.

The service also supports individuals who have experienced a hate incident or a hate crime. This is when you feel you have been targeted because of your ethnicity, faith, disability status, sexuality, gender or gender identity. You can download our leaflet here Safe from Harm.
