Domestic Violence UK
Supporting Victims of Emotional and Domestic Abuse
Domestic Violence UK is a “not for profit” organisation set up to provide information and support online to victims of domestic abuse, by developing a community where we can learn from the experiences of each other.
We recognise that domestic violence comes in many forms; not just the physical, but also emotional, psychological and sexual; and that it can be suffered by any member of society.
“More than one in four women (28%) and around one in six men (16%) are said to experience domestic violence. – The Home Office”
B-inspired by our app
Our app is the first of it's kind in the UK and allows you to save contact numbers of friends, family and national abuse helplines so that when you need help the most it is at your fingertips. At the touch of a hidden button you can send a text to let your contacts know that you need to talk. The app can be found by searching for ‘b-informed’ in the Google Play app store.
B-informed provides a secure way to access a directory which will give you the details of your nearest support organizations without leaving an Internet history on your mobile. There is also access to articles that have been written by fellow victims and experts to inspire hope for those who need it.
Support directory at your fingertips
You can now text ‘Directory’ and your postcode to 66777 to receive a list of support organizations within a 10 mile radius of you if you cannot get access to the internet but need help. Texts cost 10p/free depending on your mobile contract.
The directory is also available on our website: www.domesticviolence.org
