Domestic abuse

What does the service offer?

Our domestic abuse service offers support to individuals at risk of or living in a domestic abuse situation. This service will provide practical help and advice, and essential support for those who are at risk of homelessness, or who are currently homeless due to domestic abuse. This will include 1:1 sessions with a domestic abuse caseworker where you will be offered advice and guidance around benefits, housing, safety and wellbeing.

This service is available to all people identifying as lesbian, gay, bisexual or trans, and anyone falling under the umbrella term of LGB&T* such as queer, intersex, pansexual, gender non-binary or gender fluid, including those questioning their sexual orientation and/or gender identity.
