The Rotary Club of Doncaster and Doncare developed the LiveFree App in 2014 for Victorians who are experiencing domestic and family violence. The app, developed by Vortilla Digital, is now available on both Apple and Android devices and provides information and access to local and state based resources and support services for people experiencing domestic violence. LiveFree was developed with the aim of putting information about domestic violence and where to get help across Victoria in the palm of your hand.
The app is designed to help build awareness around domestic and family violence issues. LiveFree has detailed descriptions of family and domestic violence situations to help victims understand the types of behaviours that can be classified as abuse or family violence. LiveFree contains useful and potentially life-saving tips including checklists for women who are preparing to leave a domestic violence situation. Most importantly, the app is easy to use and the information can all be obtained anonymously.
