Thinking about leaving?

If you are planning to leave your abuser, there are steps you can take that might help you to make your escape quickly and safely

  • You may have to leave on the spur of the moment: plan an escape and get the support of a trusted neighbour or friend if possible.
  • Take your children with you: you may not be able to collect them later without going through the courts.
  • Keep some money saved for taxis or bus fares, and telephone calls.
  • Try to ensure you have your own key to the house.
  • Have clothes ready for you and your children, in case of a quick getaway.
  • Get the telephone numbers of your nearest Women’s Aid Group.
  • Make sure you have important documents, bank account details, car documents, marriage and birth certificates, passports and medication with you when you leave.
  • If you are planning to leave, bring things that may be precious to you and your children, e.g. favourite toys and clothes, pictures, jewellery.
