Safety Planning for Women Who are Abused

abusive partner (3)

When one partner is hurting the other, it’s called abuse or domestic violence. It can include physical abuse, sexual abuse, controlling their partner’s money or behaviour, controlling them emotionally, or coercive control.

If your partner abuses you, your safety and the safety of those around you need to become the priority. A safety plan lays out how you can protect yourself and your children. Take one action at a time. Start with the one that is easiest and safest for you.

This brochure gives you information about how to make a safety plan.
