Leaving the Abuser

Here are some suggestions for your personal safety when you leave:

  •  Request a police escort or ask a friend, neighbour or family member to accompany you when you leave.
  • Contact your local women’s shelter.  It may be a safer temporary spot than going to a place your partner knows.
  • Do not tell your partner you are leaving.  Leave quickly.
  • Have a back-up plan if your partner finds out where you are going.
