A campaign for safe spaces online

Online space can feel very unsafe for women and girls in general and particularly if they have experienced abuse. An online safe spaces scheme was launched with the Royal Mail in 2020.

Online Safe Spaces was launched in the summer of 2020 by Hestia in partnership with the Royal Mail Group, providing a portal of information and resources on company websites for people experiencing domestic abuse. The portal provides another opportunity for people experiencing domestic abuse to seek support and does not show up on browsing history. Online Safe Spaces are currently available on national websites including Royal Mail, Post Office, Thames Water and Network Rail.

You can access the portal by clicking on the Safe Spaces logo on participating websites.
