Tackling family violence one Smartphone at a time

In September 2017, the Women’s Legal Service of Queensland launched its financial empowerment app, Penda.

Penda combines financial, safety and legal tips as well as referrals and resources with the aim of assisting the user to attain financial independence when exiting an abusive relationship.
