Planning to Leave

Planning to Leave

Some women have time to make a plan to leave, however some women leave in an emergency. If you have time to plan leaving an abusive relationship, it is helpful if you could bring some or all of the following items with you.

  • ID documents – passport, birth/marriage certificate, national insurance number
  • Financial Information – bank statements, wage slips, benefit award letters
  • Personal Items – Clothes, food, money, toiletries, towels, medication
  • For children – birth certificates, clothes, medication, favourite toys, books, school/nursery
  • uniform

If you have to flee in an emergency please do not worry about the above list, we will help.
