Who We Are

The Safer Living Foundation 

The Safer Living Foundation (SLF) was founded in February 2014. It was set up as a joint venture between HMP Whatton and senior academics from Nottingham Trent University. It is supported by the likes of the National Probation Service (East Midlands) and Nottinghamshire Police. As a Charitable Incorporated Organisation that adopts a multi-agency approach with a strong research component, the SLF is focused on reducing sexual offending and re-offending through rehabilitative and preventative initiatives.

Our Charitable Objectives:

  • To promote the protection of people from, and the prevention of, sexual crime.
  • To promote the rehabilitation of persons who have committed or who are likely to commit sexual offences against others.

If you have been affected by sexual abuse and need someone to talk to, there are organisations specially dedicated to offering support. These include Samaritans (call anytime on 116 123), Victim Support (call free on 08 08 16 89 111) and Childline (call on 0800 1111).

If you are worried that a child may have been abused (even if you are unsure), contact the NSPCC professional counsellors 24/7 for help, advice and support. NSPCC 0808 800 5000 or email ku.gro.ccpsnnull@pleh. If you want to report a child protection concern, contact your local authority child protection team – find the team in the area that the child lives on gov.uk.

If you think that a child or adult is in immediate danger of harm, call the police on 999.

Further information can also be found on the Stop It Now website.
