The SafeLives knowledge hub is an essential port of call for all professionals working with victims of domestic abuse and their families.

Get timely and impartial advice and strategic support from our team of experts, access our online library of tools and resources, and interact with peers from across the country.

The SafeLives knowledge hub builds on the quality support offered by the Marac development programme, and opens it up to all professionals working with families affected by domestic abuse. We want to provide you with tools and services to make your job easier, and ensure families living with abuse get the best quality support as quickly as possible.
