A safety plan helps you find possible ways of protecting yourself and children from abuse. It prepares you to increase your safety in an emergency situation, whether you live with your abuser or have separated from them.
Plan in advance how you might respond in different situations, including a crisis.
Keep with you important and emergency telephone numbers
Teach your children to dial 999 in an emergency and what they need to say (full name, address and telephone number)
Rehearse an escape plan
Pack an emergency bag and hide it somewhere safe eg a friend or family address
Try to keep a small amount of money on you at all times
