A new ‘Safe Space’ at Aberdeen Art Gallery has been opened, which will provide help and support from specially trained staff to people who are personally suffering or suspect someone may be living with domestic abuse.
The new Safe Space at the Gallery will be staffed by people who have received additional training on mental health awareness and domestic abuse. It will be an area that can be used to seek help, or simply to reflect and remember. Location and Opening hours noted below.
