Epsom Safe Haven to relocate

Safe Havens provide out of hours help and support to people and their carers who are experiencing a mental health crisis or emotional distress.

Safe Havens are open evenings, weekends and bank holidays. The Safe Havens are designed to provide adults with a safe alternative to A&E when in crisis.

The Epsom Safe Haven will be moving to new premises at the Brickfield Centre, Epsom in the next month.

The Epsom Safe Haven is currently located in the Surrey Choices building at The Larches, 44 Waterloo Road, Epsom, KT19 8EX. It will continue to see people in person and virtually until the service is moved to the Brickfield Centre, Portland Place, Epsom, KT17 1DL.

The move will take place in daytime hours so the Epsom Safe Haven will be open and ready to support people from 6pm on the day of the move, ensuring there will be no disruption to the service.

The relocation follows a decision by commissioners from Surrey County Council, funders at Surrey Heartlands Integrated Care System, as well as service providers Mary Frances Trust and Surrey and Borders Partnership NHS Foundation Trust (SABP) that the current building is no longer suitable to deliver the service. After an extensive engagement period to gather views from people using the service as well as partner organisations and local stakeholders, it was decided that the best location for the service was at the Brickfield Centre in Epsom.

The Epsom Safe Haven will continue to be open from 6pm-11pm every day of the year (including bank holidays and weekends). People experiencing a mental health crisis will be able to continue to receive help both in person or connect to the Epsom Safe Haven virtually.
