Bright Sky app gets a refresh

Bright Sky is a free app providing support and information for anyone who may be in an abusive relationship, or those who are concerned about someone they know. You can download Bright Sky for free on both iOS and Android devices on the App Store and Google Play Store.

How Bright Sky Can Help You:

The app features:

A unique UK-wide directory of specialist domestic abuse support services, where users can contact their nearest service by phone from the app, searching by area name, postcode or their current location.

A secure My Journal tool, where incidents of abuse can be logged in text, audio, video or photo form, without any of the content being saved on the device itself.

Questionnaires to assess the safety of a relationship, plus a section on dispelling myths around domestic and sexual abuse.

Information for anyone wishing to learn more about domestic abuse, sexual consent, stalking and harassment and online safety. This includes information about the different types of support available, steps to consider if leaving an abusive relationship and how to help a friend affected by domestic abuse.

Contact details and the ability to call national helplines providing support for those affected by domestic and sexual abuse across the UK.

Links to further resources and information on topics around domestic abuse.
