Safety Planning

Whether you are currently experiencing violence, thinking about leaving a violent situation or relationship, or have already left a violent situation, this guide will provide you with some strategies you can implement for yourself.

In creating a safety plan, it is important to remember that:

  • You are not to blame for the violence or for your children’s exposure to it.
  • You are not responsible for causing the violence.
  • You are not alone. There are resources available in the community to provide support (for example, counselling, crisis lines, housing, financial assistance, etc.).

One of the most crucial yet frequently overlooked aspects of safety and safety planning is taking care of yourself. Experiencing violence can be exhausting and emotionally draining. There are many ways you can try to practice self-care.
