Jersey-based entrepreneur Simon Franc created the app to empower victims.

It was made in consultation with police forces and criminal justice experts to make sure the evidence can be used in court.

The app can be downloaded for free through the Apple and Google stores or online here.

For people who have experienced abuse and sexual assault, there are various support groups in Jersey and Guernsey which are there to help.
