Domestic & Sexual Violence App Launched

The Belfast Area Domestic & Sexual Violence and Abuse Partnership have launched a domestic & sexual violence App, in conjunction with the PSCPS and Belfast Health & Social Care Trust.

The Belfast Area Domestic & Sexual Violence and Abuse Partnership is made up of agencies, organisations, groups and individuals, to include members of the legal profession, who share a common interest and purpose in improving services and support for victims of domestic violence.

On 27th November 2017, the Partnership launched their new domestic & sexual violence App, named ‘Haven: Belfast’ at an event at Belfast’s City Hall.

The App is free to download and is for anyone experiencing domestic and/or sexual violence within an intimate partner relationship and further provides information to various professionals who may come into conatct with domestic abuse in the course of their work.

Karen Connolly of Francis Hanna & Co Solicitors was involved in the Partnership’s Working Group for developing ‘Haven: Belfast’.

Karen commented;

“It has been a pleasure working with the Partnership on the development of ‘Haven: Belfast’. The App provides an array of material on domestic violence, to include useful information on how to recognise the warning signs of an abusive relationship and where to go for support. There is information contained within the App of the various legal remedies a person has for gaining protection from an abusive relationship. It will hopefully act as a useful tool for clients and legal professionals alike in tackling domestic abuse within our society”.

‘Haven: Belfast’ can be downloaded at the App store or on Google Play from today.
