Digital break up tool

Digital Breakup (refugetechsafety.org)

Refuge has teamed up with Avast to raise awareness of tech abuse, both helping women understand what it is and also supporting them to secure their digital devices and platforms against potential tech abuse from a partner or ex-partner.
This interactive tool is designed to provide awareness and understanding of the various digital platforms a partner might have access to, whether it’s social media accounts, online banking, or live location through apps such as Uber and Strava. The tool also provides women with the necessary knowledge to help them secure these digital platforms against potential tech abuse from a partner or ex-partner.

Non Molestation Order

To apply for a non mol you can either contact a local solicitor or apply through the NCDV.

Ask for ANI codeword scheme

Ask for ANI (Action Needed Immediately) is a codeword scheme that enables victims of domestic abuse to discreetly ask for immediate help in participating pharmacies. 

The scheme was developed by the Home Office with the help of partners including the domestic abuse sector, pharmacy associations and the police. It was launched across the UK on 14 January 2021. 

Over half of UK pharmacies, including Boots, Lloyds and community pharmacies, are now enrolled in the scheme. People from across the UK have been supported by pharmacists to access support from the police or domestic abuse services.
