Domestic and family violence app

Who is the app for?

The Aurora domestic and family violence app is for people experiencing domestic and family violence or for those worried about their relationship. It is also a valuable resource for those worried that a friend or family member is experiencing domestic and family violence.

What is on the Aurora app?

The app contains useful and potentially life-saving information including

  • emergency contacts
  • information on the sorts of behaviour considered to be domestic and family violence
  • vital information and links to support services available in NSW

Importantly, the app also allows the user to message their trusted friends and family members or call emergency services immediately.

Is it safe?

The Aurora app has been built with numerous safety features that allow women to use it discreetly and seek assistance without risk of “tipping off” a perpetrator and endangering themselves. It was developed in consultation with NSW Police and experts from the domestic violence sector.

How do I get it?

Aurora is available now and free to download from the iPhone App Store and the Android Google Play Store.
