Penda app

Penda is a free and simple to use app combining financial tips, safety and legal information and referrals for women who have experienced domestic and family violence. Friends, family, employers and other support people can use Penda to help others. Financial security is a key element in ensuring women’s long term safety from violence as poverty and financial hardship often cause women to stay in, or return to abusive relationships.

Penda includes information and referrals to services related to domestic and family violence, finances, emergency money, Centrelink and crisis payments, and managing money and debt after separation or divorce, child support and parenting, housing and property settlement, and visas and immigration. Safety of Penda users is paramount. The app includes a lock screen game function and optional passcode setting, and safety warnings prior to and after download. Penda provides information on risk factors, safety planning, and the safe use of technology.

Penda is in app stores and available for download. For questions or feedback please call Women’s Legal Service Communications Officer, Rebecca Wildermuth on (07) 3392 0644 or email: This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it
