About Oi

The Oi App was created by Samaritans in partnership with Optus and Headjam.

Samaritans worked closely with local young people to design Oi especially for them. The content, features and even the name of the app was chosen to connect with young people experiencing abuse and empower them to seek help.

Oi is a community for young people who are willing to be a voice against abuse.
