StandbyU Foundation’s mission is to embrace the power of human connections to build a better, safer world for everyone.
Every day, the Foundation brings friends and family closer together by supporting people at risk to reach out for help and giving them smartwatches to keep them connected and safe in moments of need.
This solution, called the StandbyU Shield, has already connected thousands of people, changing the lives of hundreds of families across Australia.
"I want to say from the bottom of my heart that you are the reason I got a full night sleep with peace of mind I was safe. This watch will change my life."
"My StandbyU Shield has given me a sense of freedom and safety that nothing else had before."
"Ever since having the watch, my 8-year-old is happier. She is not scared and can go outside now. Since having her safety watch, she has learnt to swim and ride a bike."
"My children are more confident, they don't feel powerless anymore... They have found their voices."
Chris Boyle set up StandbyU Foundation in 2018 after working as a social worker in the child protection and family support sector for over 25 years. His experience within the sector inspired him to find a better, more connected way to support people in need.
Connections change lives.
