WE BRING PEOPLE TOGETHER AND
CREATE CONNECTIONS THAT CHANGE LIVES
WE GIVE PEOPLE THE SUPPORT AND TOOLS THEY NEED TO REACH OUT AND BUILD CLOSER CONNECTIONS WITH FRIENDS AND FAMILY
People need people - and it’s these close connections that have the greatest impact on us, physically and emotionally. We are all stronger and happier when we feel connected to people who care.
The StandbyU Foundation works with families who have been affected by early and more severe forms of domestic abuse, giving them the support they need to see a brighter future.
We bring people together to build safety networks, work with them to create action plans and provide simple, smart wearable devices to keep them connected in times of need.
Feeling connected and knowing someone who cares is always by your side can be life changing. It can help you feel safe in times of crisis, and give your family the freedom to enjoy life.

CREATING CONNECTED COMMUNITIES
When the people in our communities feel connected, we are all stronger and more resilient to social issues. We are taking six key steps, together with our community partners, to help reduce the incidence of domestic abuse.
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.
