Safety Upon Leaving sectors

Safety Within a Relationship

Safety After Leaving


  • Keep the responsibility for the abuse explicitly with the perpetrator

  • Provide consistency and continuity

  • Never assume you know what is best for victims; they know their situation and the risks better than you do

  • Recognise that victims will already be employing safety strategies, though they may not name them

  • Do not suggest or support anything that colludes with the abuse

  • “What do you currently do to keep you and your children safe? What works best?”

  • “Who can you tell about the violence who will not tell your partner/ex-partner?”

  • “Do you have important phone numbers available e.g. family, friends, refuges, police?”

  • “If you left, where could you go?”

  • “Do you ever suspect when your partner is going to be violent?” E.g. after drinking, when he gets paid, after relatives visit”

  • “Can you (and children) go elsewhere?”

  • “Which part of the house do you feel safest in?” “Which is most dangerous?”

  • ”Can you begin to save any money independently of your partner?”

  • “Can you find ways to attend the drug/alcohol service without your partner finding out?”

DONT FORGET…. safe? What works best?”

  • Positive things in life (activities; strengths or how to access activities to improve self confidence; self esteem)

  • Children’s safety planning

  • Response survivors may receive from services/police etc. when they make calls under the influence of alcohol/drugs

  • Discussing partner’s substance use drinking/using?

  • The location of where a survivor goes to use/drink – how does this impact on safety?

  • Discussion of harm minimisation around drug use (inc HIV and Hep B&C prevention)

  • If considering leaving – where will they get supply of drugs – do they need emergency prescribing?

  • It is also empowering for a survivor to realise that their abuser wants them to continue in their dependency to substances and to plan for such interference with their treatment
