Working towards a world without slavery


Unseen is a UK based charity who provide safe houses and support in the community for survivors of trafficking and modern slavery.

Storm worked with Unseen, who were our Charity of The Year in 2023 to build a native mobile app to educate people about modern slavery as well as providing a way to report suspected cases.

I’m delighted with the app that Storm has produced for us. It looks great and it works seamlessly. The app is an important tool in the fight against modern slavery, used by thousands of frontline workers up and down the country, so it has to be of a very high standard. Storm have more than delivered for us

Modern usability

With the charity having been through a recent rebrand, it was the perfect time for us to build them a new app that aligned old and new. We designed the app to match all of the modern stylings of its website counterpart. Along with creating an updated look and feel, we restructured the app, putting the user first by making getting in touch with the Modern Slavery Helpline in a possible dangerous situation the top priority, along with educating users with how to spot the signs of slavery.

Future-proofing the system

Given our expertise in Ruby on Rails, we took the approach to continue to develop the app in it’s original format. As well as being a web application, we also used Cordova to wrap the app for both Android and Apple app stores. The content on the app can now be edited via an online CMS, so that Unseen can provide the most up to date information to their users .

Speaking your language

From the start one of the top priorities was to support multiple languages so the app could be understood and trusted by victims who may not have any understanding of the English language. We built the app and CMS in such a way that Unseen can add new languages on their own, meaning as they get new translations, they can quickly be incorporated into the application.

It was great to work with Unseen, our charity of the year, to provide a valuable tool for the work they do, it was an exciting challenge to build a mobile application while respecting our Ruby on Rails roots, and it has been great to see the response to the app so far. Our experience has given us a strong framework and we look forward to building mobile applications in the future.
