Being confined at home with an abusive partner can be very scary. Having a safety plan will help, and this pathway helps you make one. It also helps with harm reduction strategies if you're still living with an abusive partner.
You're not alone. Help is available. Sexual assault centres, shelters, and other anti-violence programs can help with emotional support and safety planning using online options like videoconferencing, or by phone, email, or text. They can also tell you how you can get more help if you or your children are unsafe, need a protection order, or need to leave.
Your answers to the questions in this pathway will guide you to helpful information and online resources for making your safety plan. The first page of your action plan will give you resources specific to the COVID-19 state of emergency. We'll update our information as the situation develops.
