The Epsom Safe Haven is moving to new premises at the Brickfield Centre, Epsom from Monday 16 May 2022.
The existing Safe Haven located in the Surrey Choices building at The Larches, 44 Waterloo Road, Epsom, Surrey, KT19 8EX will continue to see people in person until 11pm on Sunday 15 May 2022. After that date, the Safe Haven will then be based at Brickfield Centre, Portland Place, Epsom, KT17 1DL. It will be open to support people from 6pm on Monday 16 May ensuring there is no disruption to the service.
The move follows an agreement between 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 weekends and bank holidays). People experiencing a mental health crisis will be able to continue to receive help both in person and virtually.

We would like to remind people that whilst face coverings are no longer required by law in England, they remain a requirement in healthcare settings. We therefore ask any in-person visitor to our Safe Havens to wear a clean facemask (unless exempt), as well as sanitise their hands and keep social distancing as much as possible.
How to get there
The easiest way to get to the Brickfield Centre is to walk or drive. It is a 14-minute walk or a three-minute drive from the Safe Haven at The Larches in Waterloo Road. Extensive parking is available at the new site.
Buses 406 and 293 leave Epsom clock tower (near Epsom station) and go to the Rainbow Leisure Centre nearby. It is then a six-minute walk from the Rainbow Centre to the Brickfield Centre.
