Safety Planning

As part of the Live Safe — End Abuse series about relationship abuse (family violence), this fact sheet explains what a safety plan is and:

  • how to make one for at home,
  • how to make one for outside the home, and
  • how to make one after leaving an abusive relationship.
It also describes how the police can help and where to get support services and legal help.

All fact sheets in this series are folded for display in brochure racks. Updated to conform to the new BC Family Law Act (March 18, 2013).
