I’m having a moment of clarity….
I’m planning my exit!! But I’m trying to be careful about how I do this. I’m in contact with multiple agencies and I now know I can be taken to a safe house, I also know who I contact when it’s time.
I’ve spoken to a local cat charity and they can take my cat (she means so much to me) in as a temporary foster until I find permanent housing. I’m going to speak to my oldest son about the dog, I’m sure he will help if it means I get out.
I’ve also started to save bits of cash, it’s not a lot, but hopefully when I go it will help I’ve got no idea about or finances, frankly I will cross that bridge at a later date.
Any advice or tips would be really gratefully received. 🙏🏽

Yay! I’m so pleased for you. This has given me a bit of a lift to push forward with my plans.
I posted a similar question a few weeks ago, so you might find the responses helpful: https://survivorsforum.womensaid.org.uk/forums/topic/exit-planning-advice-please/
Well done for making plans for your cat. It must be really hard but it’s the right thing to do for you and her.
Sending love and strength! xxxxx

The dogs trust have a freedom programme where they foster dogs from women fleeing domestic abuse. Contact them and ask about it x talk to your local women’s aid. They should be able to tell you about local help x

Yes there are charities who can help you with temporary foster care if your family member isn’t able to help with taking your pet whilst you’re in a refuge. I know when I leave I’ll have to take pet with me as partner has made threats towards pet in the past to control me.
It sounds like you’re in the process of organising and planning so well done as I’m sure it’s a stressful time. Let us know how you get on xx
