Keeping You Safe

If you feel that you’re involved in situations or relationships that don’t feel safe there are services that can support you.

Barnardo’s U-Turn service is there to support you if you are in a relationship or situation which means you are not safe.

  • Is someone asking you to do things that you don’t feel comfortable doing and are not sure how to say no?
  • Is someone messaging you that is making you feel uncomfortable?
  • Have you been asked to do something that is against the law for example pass some drugs onto someone?
  • Have your friends told you they are worried about you?

Our worker can work with you to make changes that will help you understand your situation and give you confidence to make the changes you want to at your pace. Video about Barnardo's exploitation service
