Solihull bank offers Safe Space for domestic abuse victims

Solihull Editorial 11th Mar, 2023   0

DOMESTIC abuse victims are being offered a safe space at Solhull’s Metro Bank.

Staff at the High Street branch have been trained to give people support and the opportunity to safely call a helpline, support service or loved one.

Safe Spaces are part of the UK Says No More campaign and the global awareness week runs until March 12.

No More Week calls for the end of domestic and sexual abuse which impacts nearly two million people every year in the UK.




UK Says No More is working with a number of high-street locations, including Metro Bank to provide Safe Spaces – a vital, private space for people experiencing domestic abuse to be able to access support safely, without being monitored.

Kulvinder Dhanda, Solihull’s Metro Bank Store Manager, said: “As a community bank, we want to be able to support anyone locally who wishes to use our private Safe Space to help them plan the next stages of their new life.”
