Bright Sky mobile phone app support for victims of domestic abuse.

UK SAYS NO MORE is a national campaign to raise awareness to end domestic abuse and sexual violence across the UK. It was launched by the charity Hestia, who are working in partnership with various agencies including police forces. As part of this campaign, in conjunction with Vodafone, Hestia launched Bright Sky, a free to download mobile app.

Bright Sky is available on both the Apple app store and the Google Play app, providing support and information to anyone who may be in an abusive relationship or those concerned about someone they know. Bright Sky is available in 4 languages: English, Urdu, Punjabi and Polish. It includes:
- A unique UK-wide directory of specialist domestic abuse support services with contact details.
- A secure My Journal tool to record incidents of abuse via 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.
- Links to further resources and information on topics around domestic abuse.

IMPORTANT: Please only download the Bright Sky app if it is safe to do so and you are sure that your mobile phone is not being monitored. If you are in immediate danger, always call the police on 999.
 
To see a preview of how the Bright Sky app works, or to make a donation to Hestia to allow their important work to continue, please visit this link: https://www.hestia.org/brightsky
