Arc is a free app that enables women experiencing family violence to track details of abusive behaviour by uploading photos, videos, audio and diary entries to create a record of what has happened, when it happened, and how it made them feel.

Developed by Domestic Violence Resource Centre Victoria (DVRCV), Arc gives women an opportunity to take a step back and sense check their experiences of family violence in cases where perpetrators are gaslighting or deny violent behaviour, providing victim survivors with reassurance that they haven’t imagined abuse.

The Arc app may be used to help domestic violence victims explain their story to a friend, family member or a support service, to provide key information to police, in court, or with legal or family violence practitioners.

The app design is discreet, and Arc can be deleted instantly from a device, and reinstalled at anytime without loss of information.

Take control of your story with Arc.

Didn’t work

I am a family violence and sexual assault Counsellor. I heard about this app from a client. So I thought I would download it and check it out to see if it is worth recommending to others.
Unfortunately I couldn’t even get past the login screen. I verified my email and it still would not allow me access.
I won’t be recommending this to clients.
