Sunny is 1800RESPECT's app for people with disability who are experiencing, or risk experiencing, domestic, family and sexual violence. The app provides support to individuals to recognise, respond and get help if they are experiencing violence and abuse.

Sunny helps people with disability to learn about violence and abuse, and their rights through interactive stories and supports them to tell their stories using an interactive keyboard. Sunny includes accessible, easy to read information about different types of violence, where violence can happen, and who can cause violence.

Everyone has the right to feel safe with other people. If someone is making you feel scared or unsafe Sunny can help you find support.
