SafeCraft is a 'White listed' Minecraft server that is designed to be a safe place for children and the families & friends of children that have autistic conditions, to play Minecraft on line.

If you are a child or a family member, or friend of a child with an autistic condition, and you have the PC/Mac version of Minecraft you can apply to be added the server whitelist and granted access to the Minecraft Server.

SafeCraft was created by myself Ellis Deacon (in game name EllisWin) & my wife Michelle Deacon (in game name ShellyWin) after we took part in an autism awareness anti-bullying campaign, and decided that we wanted to do more as a family, so we started SafeCraft, SafeCraft is the first UK based Minecraft server, with owners that are trained in Safeguarding Children & Adults. The server and website have been specifically designed to be a place where children with autistic conditions can play safely, together with their friends & families without being judged, bullied or mistreated in any way.

We also invite applications from parents of any child, no matter what their ability, who would like a safe place for their children to play Minecraft online.

Some SafeCraft features include:
  • Sophisticated chat filtering software to keep in game chat friendly and supportive.
  • Survival worlds with no PVP and inventory protection.
  • Anti griefing software to protect your builds.
  • In game simple support ticket system for all players to access and ask for help.
  • Mini-games that add enhanced game play to Minecraft.
  • No pay to play, all items within the server shop can be bought with 'Points' which can be earned in game.
  • Friendly, supportive & helpful Admin/Moderation staff.
  • Safeguarding Children & Adults trained Owners & Staff
For more information please read our FAQ and Parent Information pages, we look forward to meeting you all on the server.

We are really excited to tell you that we are almost ready to move over to Minecraft 1.8 on SafeCraft, we now have a working version of Spigot 1.8 that will allow us to run our servers in full 1.8/1.8.1 mode.

I have duplicated all of the 14 servers that make up SafeCraft, and I am currently working my way through each server making sure all the great plugins we use are still compatible with Minecraft 1.8 and where I find ones that are not working, I'm working at getting them updated and working properly.

It has been a considerable struggle as many aspects of Minecraft 1.8 have changed, which has meant there has had to be some serious amounts of time put in getting it just right, so far we have only come across one plugin that is not currently working with 1.8 and that is Echo Pets, which runs all the pets on the survival worlds, however I do know that the owner of the plugin is currently working on an update for this plugin, so we hope it will be ready by the time we change over to 1.8.

When we move over to 1.8 survival worlds will have to be reset to enable the world files to regenerate with all the new features/blocks that 1.8 brings, however, we will keep the old worlds accessible so that players will be able bring resources they have collected in the old worlds to the new survival worlds.

Additionally if anyone has built anything in the survival world that they want to be copied over to the new worlds we will be able to do this, so there is now worries that players will not loose anything there.

So were almost there, we hope to be ready in a week or two to move over to Minecraft 1.8, all we ask is that players be a little patient with us, as it is only 2 of us working towards the update, with me working the servers, plugins, and maintenance side of things, and Blue354 working on some new elements to some of the servers.

In the meantime we will still try and get on the servers as often as possible, we will get a recording in sometime before Christmas for YouTube so keep an eye on the website for information relating to this.

As always everyone, have fun, and see you all soon on the server.

mummywummy MemberParent Looking forward to it, thank you for all the hard work and for making such excellent servers for young people to play on ...

New Senior Server Champion

As some of you may know, from time to time we chose to recognise players who have shown that they are dedicated to the server, players who are helpful and supportive of other players, players who consistently conduct themselves on the server in an excellent manner.

We are really excited and pleased to give out our next Server Champion award, because not only have we recognised this player as one that is deserving of a reward, but also his peers on the server have recognised his positive and supportive attitude towards the server, and they have taken time to tell us about why they think this player should be recognised.

So it gives us great pleasure to award the rank of Senior Server Champion to Mr_brickly_7 who has consistently proven to be a kind, polite, supportive and considerate member of the SafeCraft community, well done "Mr B" keep up the good work.

The 1st of December 2014 see's SafeCraft getting the decorations out for Christmas, we have been busy working in the background to bring you all a piece of SafeCraft Christmas for a few weeks now, and at last we get to unveil what we have been doing.


The main lobby has had a full Christmas make-over, with a giant Christmas tree and Christmas wreaths to help you all get in the Christmas mood, we hope you like it.

But its not only the lobby that has a bit of Christmas Magic applied to it, you will also see that both the Survival Games Lobby and the Paintball lobby have had the magical Christmas touch including a brand new Survival Games lobby built by our fantastic admin's Blue354 and JoJoCraft19, we think they have done an amazing job and we really hope you enjoy not only the new lobby but the new arenas.

We have 4 new Survival Games arenas including 3 from the fantastic adventure map Toy Story 2 including the Kitchen, Lounge and Garage again just like AJ's bedroom you appear in these maps as if you are only a few inches tall, so have fun in there.

We also have a fantastic new Wacky Christmas arena, which is real fun, we hop you enjoy it and look forward to playing some rounds in there with you all, we have also taken the opportunity to update the survival games plugin to include end of round arenas, where if there are still players left in the game after a fixed amount of time they are instantly transferred to a small end of round arena where they have to try and come out victorious.

We would like to wish all our players a very merry Christmas, we hope you really enjoy the new fun and games on the server, and for all the parents of our players, we hope you have a calm and not too stressful December,  thank you for letting you children join in the fun and games at SafeCraft, we would love to see more parents on the server, so why not ask Santa for a copy of Minecraft (PC/Mac) of your own for Christmas.


67kingdedede Member Advent Parkour? A new course every day? ...
mummywummy MemberParent spectacular!
Today all of the family spent the day in London, to be present at Whitehall to watch the Remembrance Day Parade, and to see the cannons fire and mark the beginning and end of the two minuets silence of remembrance on Horse Guards Parade Ground, some of you may already know that I am an ex-serviceman myself server in the Royal Navy for 10 years, during which time I saw action during the Gulf War of 1991.

This was the children's first visit to London for Remembrance Sunday, and I think they really appreciated the importance of it all, especially when they saw the absolutely huge number of service veterans all there to remember all those who have given their lives for the peace and freedom we enjoy today.

So it was with great pride that we stood among these people, these people who have served their country in both times of peace and times of war, these people who every year, on the same date, at the same time, stand in silence for two minutes to remember all those who never came home, these people I stood shoulder to shoulder with and I am proud to call my fellow veterans.

It was a very emotional day, but at the same time a fantastic day, we will be back again next year, but I will hopefully be a part of the parade myself, marching alongside my fellow ex-servicemen.

We have also built a memorial on the server, and if anyone wants to take a look at it, in a field of poppies, then you can visit it by using the warp /warp cenotaph.







They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them.
