Safety Planning

You deserve safety, respect and dignity

This toolkit will help you plan for your safety and the safety of your children or pets (if applicable) when you are living with or have left a partner who uses abuse. Safety planning is different for everyone, this toolkit is a guide to help you make decisions that feel right for your unique situation. 

Honouring Resistance

We would like to thank Dr. Allan Wade, Dr. Shelly Dean, and other colleagues from the Centre for Response-Based Practice for all we have learned from them about how victims resist violence and abuse
