What to do when you decide to leave

on 16 March 2018

Be ready to leave at the right time, when you feel safe. The decision is yours and you don’t have to allow anyone to influence you. To help you succeed, we’ve prepared a safety guide, including some of the most important aspects. We suggest that:

You are ready for emergencies.

  • Become familiar with abuse trigger signs.
  • Find the safe spaces in your house, where you can find refuge (avoid small, closed spaces, that you can’t leave, or rooms with potential weapons, such as the kitchen). Choose a room with a phone and a door or a window opening to the outside.
  • Establish a code (word or sign) to warn your children, friends or neighbours that you are in danger and that they should call the police.
