Why was Handi SOS created?

Have you ever tried calling for help in a moment of distress or when your phone is out of reach? Handi SOS was created as a personal safety gadget that allows you to quickly and discreetly sends an SOS message with your location with a simple click of a button; even if your phone is out of reach.

What is Handi SOS?

Handi SOS is a little portable, battery powered bluetooth button and app that pairs with your smart phone allowing you to notify selected contacts you need help – even if you can’t reach your phone.


What does it do?

When pressed, the Handi SOS button sends a text message and your Google Maps location to the people you wish to inform that you are in need of help.

How does it work?

Powered by Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE), the little coin sized button is paired with your phone. When pressed, the button sends a signal to your phone and the Handi SOS app instructs your phone to send a text message with your location to the contacts you have selected; including emergency services (such as the Police) if you wish. These contacts will receive the SMS text message with your location based on the GPS location of your phone.

Handi SOS would ensure the safety of both staff and clients and maintain the quality of our work.


This could be a life saving intervention for some of our most high risk victims and we would love to be able to offer this help and if financially viable could roll-out to the thousands of high risk women we support each year. We support over 16,000 women and children each year. Having something like this device to provide an extra layer of safety will have practical and emotional benefits to those who are trying to rebuild their lives after abuse.
