1 in 3 New Zealand women will experience some form of domestic violence in their lifetime. Domestic violence is not limited to physical abuse; it also includes emotional, verbal, psychological, economic and sexual abuse. It can be difficult to work out if what you are experiencing in your relationship is abuse or not. The 1 in 3 Be Free App can help you identify whether you’re in an abusive relationship and connect you with support services in your area.Developed by: With support from: © Inner City Women’s Group 2016
The 1 in 3 Be Free App is a tool created to show you what an abusive relationship can look like. We strongly recommend that you talk with a domestic violence specialist if you do have any concerns about what’s happening in your relationship.
Based on the answers you give in the following quiz, the App will identify the dynamics of domestic violence that may be present in your relationship. The App will then link you to support services in your region.

If any of these conditions are not met, they have breached the protection order. Call the Police immediately as they can be arrested and charged with a criminal offence.If you would like any more info on Protection Orders, visit this page
