Rural and remote survivors of intimate partner violence

Luke’s Place has a toolkit on how to support survivors of intimate partner violence who live in rural or remote areas. The first section of the resource explains how living in a rural or remote location, or in a small community, impacts women experiencing intimate partner violence. The second section of the resource focuses on ways to support violence survivors in these areas. The toolkit is part of Neighbours, Friends and Families (NFF), a program of Western University’s Centre for Research and Education on Violence Against Women and Children. The program offers training for anyone who is concerned about a person experiencing intimate partner violence.
