Local agency Victim Services of Leeds and Grenville can help with Safety Planning.
Safety planning is about brainstorming ways to stay safe that may also help reduce the risk of future harm. It can include planning for a future crisis, considering your options, and making decisions about your next steps.
It’s important to keep in mind that you do not have control over another person’s level of violence. If you are being subjected to some form of abuse, creating a safety plan may help you to prepare for the possibility of future violence and hopefully help you protect yourself and your children.
Safety plans are information that’s specifically geared towards actions you can take, for yourself and / or your dependents. Risk factors change and that means safety plans also need to change sometimes.
