LGBT relationships

LGBT people experience domestic abuse regardless of age, class, disability, gender identity, caring responsibility, immigration status, race or religion.

Acknowledging that any partner, ex-partner or family member is an abuser is hard. This can be made even harder by threats of 'outing' or through fear of further isolation.

If you identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and are experiencing domestic abuse you can contact our LGBT team through our helpline on 01273 622 828.
