Walksafe App 
This free app is designed to be used by people wanting to get from place to place safely and will send alerts to designated contacts if this doesn’t happen within a specified time. It also includes features such as Follow Me and the ability to share your location with trusted friends giving them real-time updates.

Hollieguard App 
This app was set up by the family of Hollie Gazzard who was tragically murdered by an ex-partner. It is a personal alarm, deterrent, evidence catcher and more.

Ask for Angela 
Sometimes you can find yourself in a situation that isn’t safe or that makes you feel uncomfortable. In premises that operate Ask for Angela, you can discreetly ask for help from a member of staff if this happens.
