1800RESPECT: Daisy App

IMPORTANT: In an emergency – if anyone is in immediate danger – please call 000 now.

Daisy is an app developed by 1800RESPECT to connect people experiencing violence or abuse to services in their local area. Daisy can be downloaded for free from iTunes or Google Play. Once the app is on your phone, you can use it to search for support services in your local area. Choose the type of service you would like (for example ‘Legal services’ or ‘Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander services’) and select your state or territory to find services near you. 

You can visit service websites from within the app, which means these sites won’t show up in your browser history. This can help protect your privacy, especially if another person has access to your phone. Each listing includes information about opening times, how to get in touch and the services they offer.
