This webinar will focus on how technology can be used to improve the journey to support for those enduring domestic violence and explore how it can enable friends family members, and colleagues to feel equipped enough to respond. We will hear about the evolution of Bright Sky, an app that provides practical support and advice around domestic violence, from a discussion in a refuge in London to a partnership with Women's Centre & Shelter of Greater Pittsburgh and a tech development company, who donated their time and expertise to help design and trial a product that is now available in 13 markets including the US, thanks to a partnership with Vodafone Foundation. The discussion will touch on the barriers to support that many may experience, how initiatives like the (UK-based) Safe Spaces program enable high street locations such as pharmacies and banks to become a place where people can access discreet support, and how these initiative are powered by technology and in this instance, Bright Sky.
