Get ready for a more empowered, financially confident future. How to decide whether to remain with a abusive partner or choose to leave.

If you are in an emotionally, physically or financially abusive relationship you may be considering if you should leave or not. This section contains a checklist of things to do to help you protect yourself and your children while you are in the relationship but also if you think you want to leave it.

It includes information on how to use technology safely; manage your own finances; make a safety plan; keep your key documents safe and collect evidence. It also provides links to organisations, including Centrelink, that offer support and payments.

Your Toolkit helps women and their families facing financial or other domestic abuse become empowered through increased skills and knowledge.
