LGBTQ+ Independent Domestic Violence Advocates Team
Our Independent Domestic Violence Advocates (IDVA) provide support to LGBTQ+ people currently at high risk of Domestic Abuse from partner(s), ex-partner(s), or family members. This includes support for LGBTQ+ people who are experiencing or are at risk of honour-based violence/abuse (HBVA), forced marriage, stalking, and coercive controlling behaviours.
Our RECLAIM Coordinators offer support to those who are currently or have previously experienced Domestic Abuse from a partner(s), ex-partner(s), or family member(s) and may not require support from an IDVA.
You will be allocated your own dedicated caseworker who will provide a safe, supportive, and non-judgemental environment where you can discuss the issues you have been experiencing and support you to make informed decisions about your situation.
