About Us

SafeSpace is a supported accommodation project based in East Lancashire for 16 – 21 year olds who are homeless or at risk of becoming homeless, including young people who are leaving care.

Pendle Since August 2011 we have provided the accommodation and support service in a brand new, purpose built building that provides fully furnished accommodation and support for 19 young people. The new facilities include 15 self-contained flats (consisting of a lounge, bedroom, bathroom, and kitchen and storage area), 4 emergency bedrooms, communal lounges, training kitchens, communal laundry, IT suite, activity room, counselling room, meeting rooms and office space. The accommodation is situated directly next to the brand new Nelson Youth and Community Centre – The Zone allowing access to their provision and services.

Rossendale As a result of commissioning from Supporting People Lancashire, from 6th July 2015 we have provided our accommodation and support service from 1 Queen St in Rawtenstall, which provides 5 emergency rooms, 6 bedsits and 3 move on flats for young people. There is also a communal lounge, training kitchen, communal laundry, IT room and office space.

SafeSpace supported accommodation is staffed 24-hours by staff and volunteers. Our accommodation bases in Pendle and Rossendale allows us to provide the highest standards of supported accommodation along with the highest quality of support delivered by our team of qualified and extensively experienced staff and volunteers. Our projects do not just provide accommodation but also provides services and support to meet the holistic needs of young people to ensure they develop the appropriate and required skills to live independently and have successful futures.
