Hestia is exploring different ways we can use technology to support the recovery of our service users.

We are developing new technology, including the Bright Sky app, to support those experiencing domestic abuse as well as concerned friends and family members.

Bright Sky

Bright Sky is a free to download mobile app, launched in partnership with the Vodafone Foundation, providing support and information to anyone who may be in an abusive relationship or those concerned about someone they know.

The app is also designed to be used by specialist and non-specialist practitioners and other employers, and for anyone looking for information about issues around domestic abuse such as online safety, stalking and harassment and sexual consent.

4 March 2019: The Bright Sky app has already provided support and information to thousands of people across the UK. We're proud that the Vodafone Foundation has announced plans for a global expansion of the app to countries including the Czech Republic, Ireland, Italy, Malta, Portugal, and Romania.
