You may have decided that you wish to leave your abusive husband, partner or family member(s). Leaving an abusive relationship can be dangerous and it is very important that your abuser does not find out that you are planning to leave.
You should seek specialist support from a domestic abuse agency who will support you to make a plan to leave safely. Search for your local domestic abuse service here, or contact our Helpline by phone or email.
We’ve put together some suggestions you might want to consider if you are thinking about leaving. However, we do not know your abuser(s) and their behaviour so you should not take any action which you feel may put you in danger.
