FEELING CONNECTED TO OTHER PEOPLE HAS A HUGE IMPACT ON OUR LIVES

HUMAN CONNECTION IS THE BIGGEST CONTRIBUTOR TO OUR HEALTH

When we feel connected to others, we start to change the way the world works.

 

A strong Connections Map makes us less vulnerable to those who want to hurt us. It makes us less lonely. Less depressed. Less anxious. When we feel a true, genuine connection with others, we are not only more likely to get through the hard times, we are more likely to live a long, happy life.

At StandbyU Foundation, we’re fighting the big social problems that affect so many Australians - domestic violence, sexual abuse, child abuse - but we're doing it differently. We’re tackling these issues at the source and providing lifelong solutions with real impact.

 

With strong human connections, we can overcome all these challenges, together.

AMY'S STORY

TAYLA'S STORY

It has definitely made us closer to our family because it has made us talk about it. I have found that since then, my family are really understanding and supportive.

Ever since having the watch, my 8 year old is happier. She is not scared anymore and can go outside now. Since having her safety watch, she has learnt to swim and ride a bike.

I think all women and children that are going through domestic violence should have this. The feeling of being safe and having people believe you is amazing.

We have been able to do things that we need to do without completely feeling vulnerable and unsafe, like even going to the supermarket.

It helped connect with people. I have met the neighbours, they are lovely people and they are hopefully coming for Christmas as well.

We definitely felt much safer… I was able to access my support straight away, and immediately, emotionally I felt better.
