Making a safety plan when leaving an abusive relationship

Leaving an abusive relationship

Continuing our information on Domestic Violence, it can be very difficult to decide to leave an abusive relationship. Call the Crisis Centre on 328-0922 for support, the counsellors there can assist with a safety plan.
When you have decided to leave, pack a bag and leave it with a friend or neighbour. Make sure that you pack extra clothes and, if you have a child or children, pack a favourite toy. Keep an extra set of house and car keys outside of the house in case you have to leave in a hurry.
Important papers that you should take with you are:

  • Birth certificates
  • Any medication and health insurance papers
  • Cheque and/or savings books
  • Passports
  • Pay slips
  • Any court papers
