Bumble Teams Up With Non-Profit Bloom To Offer Trauma Support

In an industry first partnership, Bumble has announced the launch of complimentary online trauma support to members who report sexual assault or relationship abuse. In collaboration with non-profit Bloom, the announcement is evidence of shifting priorities and improved safety measures being implemented across the online dating-sphere.

A global survey of the Bumble community, undertaken by Bloom found that abuse was happening almost equally online and in-person. As a result, Bumble users are being encouraged to report sexual or relationship abuse to the app’s feedback team. In response, they will receive a code for free access to a version of Bloom’s support customised specifically for Bumble members. The customised program will include three self-guided courses; ‘Healing from Sexual Trauma’, ‘Society, Patriarchy, and Sexual Trauma’, and ‘Dating, Boundaries, and Relationships’, in addition to a library of resources and in some cases access to one-to-one chat support and up to six therapy sessions. 

To counteract privacy concerns, the program ensures every participant will remain anonymous, while still able to participate in a group environment. Bloom technology guarantees end-to-end encryption that enables secure conversations, in order to recreate in-person therapy online for those who most need it. 

“The safety of our members has been central to our mission from day one. It is vital that we create a space for survivors within our community to be seen, heard and believed,” says Kenya Fairley, Bumble’s Head of Member Safety Support.
