This safety plan booklet contains ideas and information that others have found useful when they have left a violent relationship. The suggestions may be adapted to suit your individual circumstances; only you can decide on the best options for yourself and your family and what is realistic and affordable.
Planning for your safety is a process of looking at your situation and assessing what you might need to help you feel and be safer. Your safety plan must be relevant to your needs and be adapted if your situation changes. Safety planning is not about living in fear; it is about taking proactive steps to improve your and your children’s safety.
