Lake District Safe Haven Transition House Society

It's hard to leave when you don't know where to go. Women have a right to be safe in their own homes - but sometimes the only safe place is somewhere else.

 


Transition houses, safe homes and second-stage houses are meant to be safe places. Their addresses Aare not widely publicized to try to keep them safer. When you've finished your stay at a transition house, you are given priority for affordable housing where it is available.


  • Transition houses provide temporary housing in a safe, secure environment for women and their children leaving abusive relationships. Women and their children usually stay in a transition house for less than a month.

  • Safe homes provide temporary accommodation in communities where transition houses do not exist. The safe home may be a rental apartment, private home or hotel unit.

  • Second-stage houses help women who have left abusive relationships make long-term plans for independent living. Women and their children usually stay in a second-stage house for 9-12 months.
