Making a Safety Plan

A personal safety plan is a way of helping you to protect yourself and your children.

It helps you plan in advance for the possibility of future violence and abuse. It also helps you to think about how you can increase your safety either within the relationship, or if you decide to leave.

Make a safety plan

You can't stop your partner's violence and abuse - only he can do that. But there are things you can do to increase your own and your children's safety. You’re probably already doing some things to protect yourself and your children – for example, there may be a pattern to the violence which may enable you to plan ahead to increase your safety.

If you are able to get to the Portland Centre in safety, come and talk to us. We will help you find ways to remain safe.

If you or someone you know needs more information or help, come to the Portland Centre, where you will find genuine support to sustain you whilst you regain control of your life.

This is how we can help you
