Making a Safety Plan Living with an abuser


  • Find someone that you trust, and tell them about the abuse
  • Find a place you can go to in an emergency
  • Create a plan to leave the home safely if you feel threatened
  • Ask your neighbours to call the police if they hear sounds of abuse
  • If there is an argument, move to a space where you can get outside easily
  • Keep things like your keys, cellphone and money near your escape route
  • Have a list of emergency numbers to call for help
  • If you have children in the house, include them in your safety planning
