Why am I here?
In 2016, Safe@Last joined the Depaul UK family of charities. The old website, at SafeAtLast.co.uk, has been taken down temporarily for maintenance. You can find all of the same information and advice right here.
Data from the old site, including diary entries and Ask Ali submissions, has been securely and privately stored.
