The Luke’s Place Tech Safety Toolkit provides information on how to deal with tech abuse — that is, the use of technology by an abusive partner or ex-partner to harass, spy on and intimidate a woman.
The toolkit brings together resources from our Family Court and Beyond website with new and updated resources from Luke’s Place and includes family law strategies and safety planning tips for women and their advocates.
