I have recommended the Safespace to my friends - August 2017

“The Safespace is brilliant.  My child now entertains herself if she wakes up in the night and self soothes to get back to sleep without calling for me.  If we didn’t have the Safespace it would have meant increasing her medication at bed time and now we have the Safespace it means we do not have to do this. I have recommended the Safespace to my friends and invited them round to see it.”

A better quality of life for all the family - June 2017

“I wouldn’t know where to start, the Safespaces Voyager has given us a better quality of life for all the family. It means we can go on holiday once a year, and gives us the option of taking him places that otherwise we couldn’t, with the reassurance that he’s safe. He loves his travel bed too. It’s comfy for him, and we have discovered that it fits into the main bedroom of a caravan if you remove the double bed out, with enough space around it for him still to be safe. It’s a Godsend basically! So thank you so much, we couldn’t be without it.”

Peace of mind that we can allow him some alone time - June 2017

“We are overjoyed with Connor’s bed that we ordered from yourselves. Due to Connor’s complex involuntary movements we had a visit from Gill and discussed Connor’s needs . The bed was adapted and tweaked so that Connor could indeed have a safe space to sleep and relax and we also have peace of mind that we can allow him some alone time without fear of him causing injury to himself . The company were amazing and kept in touch the whole time, with updates and double checking things to make sure everything was correct . The delivery and installation were great, bang on time and didn’t take long. Good explanation of operating system and all aspects of bed. Great after care also. Regular contact to check that all is well and only a phone call away. Nothing was too much bother no matter how trivial the query.”

A place of reassurance in times of distress - July 2017

“The Safespace has worked wonders for our son who has severe autism and challenging behaviours – it is perfect for providing him with a place of reassurance in times of distress and crucially a place that he will be kept safe from injury during meltdowns.  In fact I think it has saved him from serious injury as his self harming would have been so much worse without it. It has become his own hide away and I honestly don’t know what our whole family would have done without it.”

Safespace CosyFit Hi-Lo

My clients sleep pattern improved dramatically - June 2017

“My client was sleeping badly with all the family suffering due to lack of sleep. A two week trial of the Cosyfit was arranged and my clients sleep pattern improved dramatically. During the trial it was identified that a Hi-Lo facility would be required for safer moving and handling. The trial system proved invaluable. We were quickly able to secure funding and a Cosyfit Hi Lo bed was ordered during the trial period meaning Safespaces were able to provide the bed more quickly. The family and my client are sleeping so much better and there has been a dramatic improvement in my client’s focus at school.”

Safespaces are used throughout the day by many students for a range of purposes - June 2017

“We currently have 2 Safespaces at school and they are used throughout the day by many students for a range of purposes.  The main use is for time away to help with self -regulation- this is usually a choice made by the student, sometimes they are directed to go there for some time. Once in the Safespace the students calm quickly.

Students with Sensory needs use the Safespaces for Sensory activities throughout the day, sometimes with mats and other OT equipment, however some students use the walls in the space to get feedback from when they push against them.

Using Safespace has helped to improve behaviour across the school- limiting the need for restrictive physical interventions. It helps the students to be in control of their behaviour as they know they have the choice to go somewhere and let off steam safely without the need for adult intervention. This is particularly useful with our students who are on the Autism spectrum with severe learning and sensory processing difficulties.

We would consider more Safespaces in the future as we have many students requiring quiet time away from their peers in a safe place”.

I know she is safe as she cannot harm herself - June 2017

A 14 year success story

Over 14 years ago we installed a Safespace in Halifax and were delighted to recently receive this feedback from her mum Rachel:
Happy New Year ! Here is a brief update to let you know how Hannah is doing.I wanted to let you see that the Safespace is still working for Hannah and how it has really helped with her night time routine.
This has barely changed over the years and Hannah very rarely objects to going to bed at bed time. She is usually very keen to go and will even let us know in her own way if she wants to go to bed early. She still finds the Safespace a calm and relaxing place to be. If she wakes in the night she will usually chat to herself – and we continue to have peace of mind knowing that she is safe. It’s hard to believe that it’s over 14 years since Hannah got her Safespace. I confess we now take it for granted but I don’t like to think how things may have turned out for us without it.

We are glad to recieve this great feedback from Fiona Gemmell, Team Leader of the Disability Resource Team in East Lothian

I visited my client today which reminded me to contact you to say a big thank you to you and your colleagues at Safespace. He is really settled back at home, is in a better sleep routine, and is sleeping through the night. The Community Learning Disability Nurse was with me today and we were remarking that the bed is really working for D. We acknowledged it was early days and no doubt his behaviours will change but for now he is enjoying a very settled time at home and the Safespace is very much part of his care plan.

He thinks he's the King of the castle with his Safespace.....

My grandson Thomas is doing really well and thinks he is the king of the castle with his Safespace. He will take himself to his Safespace whenever he wants to. The technicians that came were polite and courteous. They were lovely boys and cleaned up behind themselves. I would recommend Safespaces both for products and staff.

As soon as George saw it he went and got his quilt, pillow & comforter and put them in ready for the night....

I just wanted to drop you a quick email to say a very big thank you for the delivery and erection of George’s new Safespace. The gentlemen who came to deliver and erect it were so friendly, helpful and knowledgeable about the product and obviously love their job. As soon as George saw it he went and got his quilt, pillow & comforter and put them in ready for tonight. I’m sure that we will have as much success as we have had with The Voyager which has been a life saver over the past few months and transformed our holiday this year.

The family sleeps much better knowing that Freddie is safe and secure....

The Safespace is the best thing ever and Freddie loves it. Bedtime is a much happier time for us all. The family sleeps much better knowing that Freddie is safe and secure. He is unable to bang on the walls and life has improved for the neighbours also. The process was so easy from start to finish. The service was quick, speedy and easy with lots of discussion around the family requirements. We received funding from Newlife and would also like to thank them.

Our Safespace has changed our lives....

Our Safespace has changed our lives and has had an impact on everyone in the family.
Danny has a safe area in the home that he feels safe and calm, he loves his Safespace and knows this is his den and others need to gain his permission to enter. We are also experiencing less melt downs. His brothers were able to sleep better at night, especially whilst going through exams at school and I am able to relax and sleep better knowing Danny is safe all night.
The Safespace is also every easy to clean and dry. I also recommend having the white wall on the back, this will be better for projectors, again this has a calming effect on Danny.
The staff at Safespace are so friendly and helpful when ever I have had to call for advise and has been a pleasure to meet. When we wanted to re-carpet the room, the staff that came out were very helpful when they came out to move the Safespace. This is more then a bed, this is a necessity for anyone with autism.
Thank you again for giving us our lives back!!

The Safespace is already having a positive impact on many of our children....

We are currently using our Safespace as (a) a chill-out room/calm down space for children who present with challenging behaviours, (b) a therapy and sensory space , (c) a cushioned are where children can make themselves comfortable and share a story with a grown-up. Although only in it’s infancy at Old Town, the Safespace is already having a positive impact on many of our children. The service we received was super and there was regular communication throughout the designing process to ensure that the bespoke Safespace was tailored to the exact specifications of our chosen space within school. The installation team were extremely professional and hard working in building the Safespace – in fact they were only on site for a minimal amount of time. We are extremely grateful to all of the Safespace team for all of their hard work and for making the design and installation so easy”.

All the family are sleeping better knowing our son is safe at night

The Voyager is fantastic for us as a family. All the family are sleeping better knowing our son is safe at night. Our son was very ill recently and had to stay in hospital he was unsettled until we took the Voyager into hospital for him, he was able to feel safe secure and calm. This is a life changer for us and I am amazed at how much better family life is.

The Safespace has helped George’s bedtime routine

The Safespace has helped George’s bedtime routine. Prior to the Safespace I would have to settle George which took anything from one to three hours & sometimes failed altogether! Whilst I was settling George upstairs it left my older daughter Lucy (13) downstairs on her own for long periods of time. However, with the Safespace, bedtime is a very different experience! We can put on the sensory equipment & just sit quietly next to George & hold his hand & he will generally fall asleep within 30-45 minutes snuggled up in a relaxing, calm & safe environment. In the three short months we have had the Safespace we have seen huge improvements with George & our whole family. George settles much better & is increasing his independence at bedtime.

We now no longer have to crisis manage after the children have arrived on the ward

The Cosyfit Hi-Lo allows us to support families with a child with very complex needs. It provides reassurance to families that we can provide a safe environment for the child. Before we had the use of the Cosyfit Hi-Lo we were not be able to provide safe care for some children, and had to cancel surgery for a couple of times. Now we use Safespaces rental service to have the Cosyfit Hi-Lo delivered when required. We now no longer have to crisis manage after the children have arrived on the ward, but can plan for their admission.

The Cosyfit Hi-Lo is ideal for our purposes…

“We are a short break unit and therefore need to cater for all manner of disabilities. The Cosyfit Hi-Lo is ideal for our purposes, it has resolved several issues that we had. We use it instead of a hospital bed with cot sides and it is much safer. We now have children able to watch TV in bed through the window. We have always had excellent, quick service from your company.”
