What is Sunny?

Designed by and for women with disability, Sunny a new app that supports women with disability to learn about violence, know their rights and reach out for support.

While the app is designed for use in Australia, the easy to read content on violence and rights is relevant to women with disability everywhere.

Women with disability can use Sunny on their iPhone or Android phone to,

  • Tell their story
  • Learn about different types of violence and abuse
  • Learn about who can do violence and where it happens
  • Know their rights
  • Contact people who can help.
