The Guildford and Waverley Safe Haven opens on Monday 4th April 2016 and will be open every evening (including weekends and bank holidays) from 6pm to 11pm.
It is located at Oakleaf in the centre of Guildford and is an informal, safe and therapeutic place for people who are experiencing or at risk of escalating to a mental health crisis.
The project is a collaboration between Guildford and Waverley CCG, Surrey County Council, Surrey and Borders Partnership Trust and Community Connections – Catalyst and is funded for one year by Surrey County Council’s Transformation Challenge Award.
The aim of the Safe Haven is to promote independence, recovery and empowerment for all adult mental health service users in the community: in addition to a mental health practitioner and two support workers on site, a link worker will be available to outreach to A&E and people in the Waverley area who are physically unable to attend the Safe Haven.
