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. Together with our community partners, we are taking three key steps to help reduce the incidence of domestic abuse.
THREE KEY STEPS TO REDUCE DOMESTIC ABUSE
Inspire and remind everyone to stay connected to their friends and family, and help them spot the early signs of personal abuse.
MAKE IT EASY TO SEEK SUPPORT
Build new, more accessible community spaces like Magnolia Place, where anyone can seek support and useful advice from friendly experts.
Focus on providing long-term practical solutions that put the individual in control of their safety, such as the world-first StandbyU Shield.
DISCOVER NEW HOPE
AT MAGNOLIA PLACE
A safe space for anyone who has been mistreated or abused, Magnolia Place is centrally located in Westfield Helensvale Shopping Centre, meaning more people can access help, safely.
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.
FEEL SAFE WITH YOUR STANDBYU SHIELD
A unique safety solution, the StandbyU Shield brings together your friends and family into a support network and uses wearable devices to keep you connected in critical moments.
A SOLUTION THAT CONNECTS US ALL
We believe everyone should feel safe and like they belong. The way we rise to society’s challenges is by focusing on what brings us together, not what pulls us apart. We solve universal problems and champion the importance and rights of every individual in need.
