The purpose of this toolkit is to facilitate discussions about safety and to provide guidance on developing an individualized safety plan. It is intended for people who want to provide support to someone experiencing harm within an interpersonal or domestic-based relationship.
Safety planning can help people who are still in relationships, people who want to leave, and people who have already left the relationship. Given the significant and increasing threat posed by firearms, there is a particular consideration to safety around guns, firearms, and ammunition. However, the content applies to any situation involving interpersonal violence.
