Do you want to know what to say or how to ‘be there’ for a loved one, a friend or even a stranger who is in an unhealthy, toxic or abusive relationship?
Be there is a free app that gives you direct access to tools that empower, educate and support you to help someone who is experiencing domestic or family violence.
Always have the tools on hand to help you recognise abuse and offer support to someone who may be experiencing or using the abuse. The app will help you do this safely and respectfully.
We give you access to tools that can validate any abusive behaviour you may see, hear or experience and help you navigate a safe way to support someone without making the situation worse or putting either of you in danger.
If we are to eliminate violence in our community, it’s up to all of us to act. With Be there, you can:
Read, save and share articles that help you learn and understand the signs of coercive control
Get recommended content and activities with built-in reminders
Save notes with the journaling feature to remember things you see, hear and feel
PIN protection ensures it all remains private and confidential
Dark mode supported
Be there is an initiative delivered by Griffith University’s MATE Bystander Program, with funding support from the Queensland Government, powered by Telstra.
The Be there team acknowledge and pay respects to the Yugambeh people and the Kombumerri Salt Water people, the traditional owners of the Bundjalung Country land on which our office sits. We acknowledge the Yugambeh and Kombumerri elders, past, present and emerging. We pay respects to all traditional owners across Australia where we meet, learn and work with others. Be there is committed to honouring Australian Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples unique cultural and spiritual relationships to the land, waters and seas and their rich contribution to society.
