Safespace is a new out-of-hours appointment service in Calderdale, offering support for people in distress during weekend evenings.

The office at 1 King Street, Halifax HX1 1SR is open from 6:00pm on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays, with the latest available appointments at 11:00pm.

The Safespace team needs volunteers to help with the service, to assist the staff team and offer supportive company for people who use the service. This can be an emotionally-demanding role and there is a rigorous selection process, with training and ongoing support provided for the right volunteers.
