Safe Space moves to Civic Offices

A Safe Space for individuals who might need support on a night out is now located in the reception of Civic Offices in Guildhall Square. This has moved from Guildhall Walk Practice, where it has been located over the summer.

The Safe Space will be open every Friday and Saturday from 10pm – 3am, to offer confidential and non-judgemental advice, immediate medical care, and help for minor injuries from trained professionals to anyone who needs it.

It is delivered by South Central Ambulance Service NHS Foundation Trust (SCAS) in partnership with NHS Portsmouth Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) and Portsmouth City Council (PCC), and with support from the University of Portsmouth.

To ensure that people get the most appropriate care, we will also be signposting to other support services and schemes in the area such as PARCS, Stop Domestic Abuse, Positive Minds, Portsmouth Wellbeing Service, Citizens Advice Bureau, Ask for Angela, Ask for Clive and others.

If you have any questions about Safe Space, please contact Jo Atkinson at Portsmouth CCG on j.atkinson2@nhs.net or 023 9289 9541.
