the shielded site project

We’ve made asking for help safer than ever.

We’ve created a tool for victims of abuse to ask for help, without fear of it showing up in their browser’s history or an abusive partner ever seeing it. A simple icon which can sit on any website and launch a powerful resource to help end domestic violence.

The Shielded Site

Now any website can be a place of refuge. If you need help but are worried about repercussions from a controlling or abusive partner, this is a safe way to find it. With The Women's Refuge Shielded Site, victims of domestic violence access a shielded portal through which they can contact us, find out how to make a plan to safely get out of a dangerous situation, learn how to stay safe online and get answers to questions about what comes next – all without fear of it showing up in their browser history for anyone else to find.

Domestic violence and technology

Technology has extended the reach of abusers. Victims of domestic violence live in fear of their every move being monitored. An abusive partner may use a phone’s GPS location, a victim’s email or banking passwords, even their web history to keep tabs on them. Making it harder than ever for those looking for help, to find it.
