Making a Plan – Follow these five steps



1. Think ahead and be prepared

  • Know who you can trust? Think in advance about times when there may still be opportunities to safely leave your home with your children.

2. Prepare an emergency bag

  • Prepare a bag for you and your children. include medicine and identity documents, passport, birth certs, pps no.'s etc.

  • Do this only if it is safe to do so and if you have a safe place to store it.

3. Make sure you can access a phone and emergency numbers.

  • Keep your mobile phone with you at all times if you have one, alternatively call 999/112 from your safe house.


4. Know what you can tell your children.

  • If your children are old enough to understand, explain that you might have to leave in a hurry.

  • Teach your children to dial 999 or 112 if there is an emergency. Make sure they know what they will need to say: name, address and telephone number.

5. Stay as safe as you can within your home

  • Ensure that a safe exit from your home with your children is part of the plan.
