About this app

Bright Sky is a free to download mobile app providing support and information for anyone who may be in an abusive relationship or those concerned about someone they know.

The app is available to use in English, Welsh, Polish, Punjabi and Urdu.


A unique UK-wide directory of specialist domestic abuse support services, so you can contact your nearest service by phone from the app, searching by area name, postcode or using your current location.

A secure My Journal tool, where incidents of abuse can be logged in text, audio, video or photo form, without any of the content being saved on the device itself.

Questionnaires to assess the safety of a relationship, plus a section on dispelling myths around domestic and sexual abuse.

Information about domestic abuse, the different kinds of support available, tips to improve your online safety, and how to help someone you know who is experiencing domestic abuse.

Advice and information on issues around sexual consent, stalking and harassment.

Contact details and the ability to call national helplines providing support for those affected by domestic and sexual abuse across the UK.

Links to further resources and information on topics around domestic abuse.

Please note:

- If you ever feel in immediate danger, contact 999 immediately.

- For your safety, we advise you to only download the app onto a device which you feel safe using and which only you have access to. Only take the questionnaires in a private place, preferably on your own so that nobody is able to influence the outcome.

- Before using the app’s My Journal feature, make sure that you have an email address which is secure and that nobody else has access to. If you need to, you can make a new one.

- For confidentiality purposes, most of the addresses given in the app’s FIND HELP tool are those of the service’s local authority or council offices, not the organisation’s own address. You are able to contact advocates via telephone.

-Please be aware that any calls made will show in your phone’s call history and on the billpayer’s phone bill.

- The ‘Am I at Risk?’ questionnaire within the app is designed to give users an indication of the signs of potential abuse within their relationship, or in ‘Family or Friend at Risk?’, the relationship of a friend or family member. However, this should not be taken as the only indication of the health of any relationship. If you are unsure, we always advise you to contact your nearest support service, or learn more about how you can help someone you know, which can be found using the Bright Sky app.

Great idea. But the app does not work. It is traumatic enough to have to relive moments of abuse - type it out over and over for the journal to fail every single time. I have restarted my phone, given the app full access to my device and I have uninstalled and reinstalled the app. This is a joke. This is making my anxiety worse and getting me upset - the frustration felt when I'm trying to help myself is saddening. It's like the app is making fun of me.

This looks like this is a really important resource, I added it after seeing information about it on a Tesco's receipt..however the app keeps crashing and I couldn't access the information. I have a galaxy s8. Please fix this - this seems like a helpful resource to help people keep safe. Could also be improved by adding more languages. Thank you.

Since the update, it keeps stopping. It's a great idea for an app...but just doesn't work!! (Kinda defeats the object if an app) I work with DV survivors and I highly recommended this app over Hollie Guard, which is the Go-To app. Not any more Can you imagine if a person experiencing DV relies on this app? It would let them down greatly! I tried uninstalling and reinstalling...still same problem.
