Daisy - The Family Violence App for Women




All forms of violence against women are unacceptable, and women experiencing violence have rights and options.

Daisy is an app that connects women experiencing family violence with services and resources to support them in decision making.

Daisy lists specialist family and domestic violence and sexual assault services, as well as legal, housing, finance and children’s services.

The service listing includes specialist sexual assault, family violence and domestic violence services. Responding to violence requires a whole-of-government approach, so Daisy also lists legal services, housing and finance services, and children’s services. Users can create a list of favourite services for easy reference.

Daisy has a number of security features including a ‘get help’ button that allows users to quickly call 000 and a ‘quick exit’ button to leave screens containing service information.

Family members and friends can also use Daisy to get information on available support services, to support their loved one’s decisions, and to become informed about the nature and extent of violence against women.

Daisy can link women up with a service’s phone number and/or website, or search the internet for more information and let women know what to expect when contacting a service.

Daisy is brought to you by 1800RESPECT and has been developed with input from all State and Territory governments, and funded by the Australian Government under the Second Action Plan of the National Plan to Reduce Violence against Women and their Children 2010-2022.


  

Daisy is available for free download from Google Play for Android phones and the App Store for iPhone.
