Be Safe

Be Safe is a multi-agency partnership service working with children and young people with problematic/harmful sexual behaviour in Bristol. Be Safe offers holistic assessment and therapeutic intervention services informed by strength based, systemic, cognitive behavioural therapy, resolutions, relapse prevention and attachment based approaches. These are structured, goal oriented and reviewed regularly. An emphasis is placed on collaborative working and a multi-agency approach. Therapeutic intervention services include one to one work, family work, and family therapy. Be Safe will consider commissions from outside the area, for consultation, training and direct work. Please see our Be Safe Referral page for clinicians, where you will find a fee structure document for more information.
