Wakefield Safe Space


Wakefield Safe Space understands that our mind doesn’t always have on off-switch and that many of us may find we need support later on at night after a tough day, or when other services are closed.

With 1 in 4 of us experiencing mental health difficulties at some point every year, Wakefield Safe Space is keen to make mental health support easier to access for everybody.

We support anybody aged 16 or over in the Wakefield District who feel they need somebody to listen and talk through their mental health difficulties in a safe, supportive, and non-judgemental space.

Our staff are not medical, but are highly trained in Mental Health Support and Suicide Prevention

The service is free to access and anybody can call to ask for support without needing a referral from a GP or Health professional.

Types of Support Available:

  • 1 to 1 support (45mins)

    • Face to Face

    • Over the Phone

  • Group Social Activities (8pm to Midnight)

To get support from Wakefield Safe Space simply call or text 07776962815 during the opening times and the team will arrange a support time that evening to suit you.

Wakefield Safe Space

Wakefield Safe Space is a partnership between Touchstone, Spectrum People and Gasped, allowing us to support people to access a wide range of health and wellbeing support across Wakefield.

The service is open to anybody in crisis aged 16+ in the Wakefield district.
Our support staff are always welcoming and here to listen to you, without judgement, over refreshments in a safe, non-clinical environment.

Please note - our staff are not clinically trained, or case workers and people may be supported by a different member of staff each time they refer for support.
