What is a safety plan?

A safety plan helps you to think about your actions in advance, to help you stay safe.

A safety plan can be useful in any situation where you may feel unsafe. This can include if you are:

I don’t know how to keep safe

Everyone should have the right to feel safe, but we can’t control others’ actions. A safety plan can help you to:

  • look at the risks you face, and make choices on how to reduce these risks to keep you safer
  • know which safe adults you can call and who can help when you are not safe
  • know when and how to call the police
  • avoid places that are unsafe
  • plan safe places you can go to and safe ways to travel
  • remember what to do in an emergency.
