Bright Sky

Approximately one in five adults in the UK will experience domestic abuse in their lifetime– so it’s highly likely that someone you care about could be affected. We know that it can be difficult to find support for domestic abuse. That is why we developed Bright Sky. 

Bright Sky is a safe, easy-to-use app and website that provides practical support and information about domestic abuse. It is designed for anyone experiencing domestic abuse, or anyone who is worried about a friend, family member, or colleague. 

We can all play our part in preventing domestic abuse, and by downloading Bright Sky you could help change or even save a life. 

You can download the app for free via the App Store for iOS and Google Play Store for Android. Please only download the app if it is safe for you to do so and if you are sure that your device isn’t being monitored.
