A safety plan represents possible strategies that can increase your safety and prepare you in advance for the possibility of further violence or abuse. You cannot control someone else’s behaviour but you can take steps towards increasing your own safety and well-being as well as the safety and well-being of your children and loved ones.
The following are general protective actions you may wish to consider if you are living with or planning to leave a residence you share with an abusive person(s). However, it is important to create a detailed safety plan that is personalized to your situation. Please call us at 905.450.4650 to talk about your safety plan.
