Staying Safe

Violence and abuse is never the victims fault. You have the right to be safe from abuse and violence. If you are in danger, call the police on 000.

There are some steps you can take to help minimise the risk to your safety, such as making a safety plan. See our information on how to stay safe online and stay safe if you end the relationship

Make a safety plan

Making a safety plan can help to minimise the risk to your safety. You can make a safety plan for continuing in the relationship, ending the relationship or if you need to escape in an emergency. For more information on safety planning, see safety planning or call the 24 hour NSW Domestic Violence Line on 1800 65 64 63 or 1800 671 442 (TTY service for hearing impaired) for help. Remember, it is never your fault if violence occurs. If you are in danger, call the police on 000.
