Bumble has partnered with Bloom to provide free trauma support to members of its global community online who are experiencing sexual or intimate partner violence. Bumble’s feedback team will submit the code for free use once it has received a report from the app community about intimate partner abuse or sexual abuse.
The goal of the collaboration is for the app community to receive up to six therapy sessions and in-person chat support with the Bloom team alongside Bloom’s readily available resource library. The resource library has been created by survivors and trauma-based therapists.
Rachel Haas, vice president of co-operation for the safety of Bumble members, said: “Someone who has dedicated their lives to supporting survivors, I know how much impact we can have on a person’s healing by giving them access to the support they need. and earn. We are proud to partner with Bloom, the industry’s first pioneer in the field of trauma information and an expert-led survival resource program. “
Bumble and Bloom are currently developing a customized curriculum that will be published in English and Spanish, followed by French, Hindi, Arabic and Urdu in 2022. Survivors of the Bumble community can also participate in curriculum design by completing an anonymous survey.
Bumble is offering customized care through Bloom’s full-time staff to select Bumble users later this year. The user base is gradually expanding. Bumble will also release services on Badoo next year.
Conversely, Chayn-led Bloom is a survivor-led nonprofit that deals with gender-based violence by creating multidisciplinary electronic resources. Chayn has made progress in planning, not for the approach where survivors services make survivors.
