This resource is part of West Coast LEAF's Older Women’s Legal Education Project and aims to connect older women with useful support services and legal help.

"During community consultation for our Older Women’s Legal Education Project, many older women and service providers suggested that we create a compact multilingual resource listing sources of support and legal information for older women. A small resource is easier to hide and less likely to be discovered by an abuser than a larger, more comprehensive resource such as our Roads to Safety handbook, and is also less likely to cause information overload for a woman in crisis.

We encourage you to print and distribute these folding wallet cards widely. We hope that this resource will help older women in BC to connect with community services, understand their legal and practical options, and receive support for the steps they may choose to take to become safer.     

Roads to Safety is part of The Older Women’s Legal Education Project, "a collaboration between West Coast LEAF and the Canadian Centre for Elder Law aiming to address a serious gap in existing public legal education resources: information tailored to older women fleeing abuse. "
