Top tips

  • Always know how to get out of a situation. If you’re at home, in the church or visiting others, try not to be alone, and make a mental note of where the doors are

  • Always have your mobile phone to hand, and programme emergency contacts in on speed dial

  • If you’re meeting someone you don’t know, take along a personal attack alarm. Try to meet in a public place, or somewhere where trusted friends or relatives can check on you
