High street bank is first to offer safe space for victims of domestic abuse

Everyone’s home should feel like a safe space, but for some that’s not always the case.
Since lockdown there’s been a steep increase in domestic abuse cases so it’s now more
important than ever that there are as many places as possible where people can feel safe
and get the help and support they need.

From today, victims of domestic abuse can access a Safe Space in 290 TSB branches
across the UK to seek specialist support and advice, as they become the first bank to
sign up to the scheme in response to the desperate situation many people are facing.

Launched by the domestic abuse charity Hestia and its UK SAYS NO MORE campaign, the
scheme will enable more victims to find help on their local high street especially as
lockdown restrictions ease across the UK.

Aston spoke to Jo Tilley-Riley, director at Hestia to discuss the initiative.
