1 in 3 Be Free App: Our gift to New Zealand women

“We recognise that it isn’t always easy to identify when behaviours in a relationship become concerning, controlling, or abusive, so we want to help educate women about different forms of abuse and their effects”  

In partnership with the fantastic Omnispex, the team at Inner City Women's Group have spent the last 2 years producing an App that helps women to screen for indicators of all forms of domestic violence from a current or ex-partner.

The 1 in 3 Be Free App is available for free download from the Google Play Store and Apple App Store. To find the App search “1in3befree”  download it, use it, rate and review it!

All good things take time, and together with Omnispex, the App has undergone several updates and security revisions since the soft launch in May to ensure it is the best possible educational tool for New Zealand women and is safe for users.

You can also use the web version of the App on our custom website: www.1in3befree.org.nz

We want to know what you think of what we’ve created, so send us an email or Facebook message with your feedback, and please share this App with any women in your life who may benefit from it. The more women we can reach, the better. Thank you for your support & patience #1in3befree
