Roots of Safety Service Planning

A women-centered approach to safety planning

Roots of Safety is a service planning approach that DIVERSEcity Violence Prevention Services developed and adapted from its parent model Signs of Safety™. It uses a women-centered approach to provide culturally safe and respectful safety planning to support the unique needs of newcomer women and their families.

All of DIVERSEcity’s gender-based violence programs use the Roots of Safety approach in service planning. It’s a collaborative process between us and the client, empowering the client to act and make decisions independently.

The framework is grounded in intersectionality and anti-oppressive practice, with a continuous effort to support the long-term healing process of self-identified women.
