‘Safety Planning’ is the term most commonly used to describe plans a person can take to leave or stay safe from a controlling or violent intimate partner. Any of our PDAN network members can help people with safety planning, but there are also checklists (below) and other online resources and Apps that can help you get started.

The Survivor Toolkit is a website with a video series developed for survivors of sexual violence and the people who are supporting them. Each video covers a different service that survivors may need; medical services, victim services, counselling, police and court. There is an introduction video and one for how to support survivors as part of the series.
