  • I’m worried about the effect this will have on my children
  • He always says sorry after he’s lost his temper
  • If I leave, I lose all our friends or our community
  • I don’t have enough money to leave, he controls the money
  • What if he goes after custody of our children?

It can feel like the obstacles you face when attempting to leave a violent relationship are insurmountable. With proper help, you can make the first steps towards living a violence-free life, where you are happy and safe.
