The Safe forum was set up in the summer of 2013 to build a broad, diverse and invaluable network of agencies and professionals who work with and support families in Essex. The forum was created in response to the impact of constant changes to legislation and monetary cut backs.

Safe Forum

On the 18th September 2013 the inaugural SAFE forum meeting took place at the YMCA Chelmsford. Since that time the forum has grown in members. We have regular meetings at which we have guest speakers and share updates and discuss issues that we may be facing.

The introduction of this online forum will further facilitate our goal of being able to come together and work together to achieve the best possible outcome for families in Essex.

As you will see there is forum within which you can share information and ask questions.

Come along to our next SAFE Forum Meeting… 

Our next SAFE Forum meeting will take place on Wednesday 14th September at the Chelmsford branch of Fisher Jones Greenwood.

Arrive at 2.30pm for an informative afternoon of networking and a talk from guest speaker Greg Myddelton – the Assistant Director for the Commissioning Office of the Police & Crime Commissioner for Essex.

The ideology behind the creation of the SAFE Forum is to reach out to other support agencies working with families in Essex and create a strong, knowledgeable network to best assist one another and care for our client base.

Greg Myddelton is currently working on behalf of the Police & Crime Commissioner to ensure victims are provided with adequate provision and consistency of support. He will talk about the services that are available and how to work towards ensuring that there is no sex/age/race bias and how there should be a seamless pathway of support.

If he cannot answer your questions on the day, he will revert back to you after the meeting.

Tea, coffee and refreshments will be provided.

Inaugural SAFE Forum Meeting2nd August 2016

On the 18th September 2013 the inaugural SAFE forum meeting took place at the YMCA Chelmsford. We quoted Henry Ford who said: “Coming together is a beginning; keeping together is progress; working together is success".

I am delighted that the last sixteen months has been a resounding success for which the gratitude has to go to you the members for making that happen. Thank you!

I am now excited to open the door to a new era in the forum’s evolution….its very own website and online forum to enable us to work together!

The ideology behind the creation of the SAFE Forum was to reach out to other support agencies working with families in Essex and create a strong, knowledgeable network to best assist one another and care for our client base. I am hopeful that this new online forum will better enable us to achieve that goal.
