Friends with Dignity and SOS Watch have partnered to provide a nationwide first in the Domestic Violence field, by providing monitored personal safety alarms to individuals or families affected by Domestic and Family violence throughout Australia.
The SOS Watch uses the latest technology, and not only provides the ability to get instant support in an Emergency, but also different health applications to help keep you up to date with your wellbeing. The watch looks and runs like a normal watch, however has the ability to contact emergency services with the push of a button (no need to locate your phone).
Complementing the Friends With Dignity Urgent Request program, the FriendSafe initiative will provide an extra level of security to help those who have fled a violent situation, as well as those who may still be at risk, by providing them with a personal safety device – the SOS watch.
We believe this watch could revolutionise the DV landscape for victims in Australia.
Our FriendSafe program is an initiative established to ensure everyone is able to practice a basic need of feeling safe and provide immediate response when feeling threatened or at risk.
