We recognise and support all people identifying as lesbian, gay, bisexual and/or trans, and anyone falling under the umbrella term of LGBTQI+ such as queer, intersex, pansexual, gender non-binary or gender fluid, including those questioning their sexual orientation and/or gender identity.
Domestic abuse and coercive control can affect everyone in our community. It does not discriminate and neither do we.
It is important that people can access the right service, options, information, and support for them.
This is why we support Switchboard and Galop, their ethos, and the services they provide. Everyone needs support sometimes and support should be for everyone.
Switchboard is a charity for LGBTQ people looking for a sense of community, support or information, including domestic abuse.
Support for LGBT+ people who have experienced abuse and violence.
