We've Been There, Done That, Got The T-shirt

Frustrated with the lack of free resources and support during individual encounters with ‘burn out’, the Safe Space Co-founders - Dani, Helen and Leanne collectively agreed on a need for change.


Joining forces, they set about creating a remedy that would move beyond traditional awareness, enlisting the support of an external workforce of clinical professionals, volunteers and brands, enabling them to provide tangible solutions that help improve community well-being.

After a prolonged stint of unemployment and financial uncertainty, I'd finally reached breaking point.


Struggling to find affordable support, I became motivated to create a service that would help prevent others from going through the same. 


Disscussing this with my network, it became clear that I wasn't alone in my frustrations and so, what started out as a community support group quickly evolved into a social enterprise.  

I’ve had an on and off relationship with depression and anxiety my whole adult life.


Until the birth of my children a few years ago, I just accepted that I was wired this way and muddled through.


On paper I had it all, but my mind would never let me enjoy what I had because I was so absorbed in what I was missing.


A big turning point for me was when I finally got my head around self-care and began to love myself.


Leaving my job in 2019, I found myself in unfamiliar territory.

It was a stressful time but it also provided me with free time to pursue a passion of helping others.


I've always felt my purpose was greater than a pay cheque and dreamed of creating safe spaces for people in need.


Connecting with Helen and Dani allowed me to do this and has provided me with a new application for mental health too.
