Domestic Abuse: Introduction to the FREE Bright Sky App

Bright Sky is a free to download mobile app and webpage, that supports anyone who may be in an abusive relationship or those concerned about someone they know. It aids the user in identifying and understanding the current situation, whilst supporting them to reach out to specialist services. Bright Sky offers a range of resources which will empower and support the user to seek the guidance they need, as well as serving as a comprehensive educational toolkit.
