Brightact is an innovative app that gathers the support society offers to those who are exposed to violence in close relationships.


There are many who fear that violence in close relationships will increase during the corona crisis, when families isolate themselves, are forced to quarantine or work more from home. The idea is to offer direct support with life-saving efforts directly to the victims of violence.


The victim must be able to use Brightact on their mobile, both to be able to get help at the moment, and to activate the safety net that is available in the app.

The City of Helsingborg will be a pilot municipality for a test of the app in real life, through the social administration and the labor market administration.

Brightact also became one of the winners of the European Commission's major hackathon #EUvsVirus, which took place on 24-26 April. Brightact is one of the ideas that went on after the Swedish hackathon Hack the Crisis on April 3-6.
