Salcare is a charity - a "one-stop shop" providing support for the people of Amber Valley and Erewash. We have been around since 1977 and we feel like part of the Heanor community and we know that is how people feel about us.
We help anyone in need, whether they have been referred to us by organisations such as social services, the police, domestic abuse services or job centres. It doesn't matter if you are outside the Amber Valley/Erewash boundaries - if you need help we will help you!
The benefit of having all the information as well as aid and assistance in one place is to be able to make sure that people who require support of any kind can be helped to make safer choices for themselves and their families.
We are now a registered 'Safe Place to Be' and also a place where 'Supervised Child Contact' can happen, to find out more please see below:
What are Safe Places to Be?
What is a Child
A vulnerable person (such as a learning disability) carries a Safe Places Help Card with their name and emergency contact details. Public premises (like shops, libraries, police stations, pubs) sign up to be officially known as a 'Safe Place' for vulnerable people. If a person needs help when they are in the community, they can show their Help card to a member of staff in a Safe Place. Someone will then call their emergency contact or the Police, depending on what the problem is.
More than a million children have no contact whatsoever with one or other parent after separation. Unfortunately some children experience behavioural issues including antisocial behaviour, distress, unhappiness, and both physical and emotional problems.
Salcare is a safe place where re supervised child contact can happen.
