Our engagement

  • 350


    We worked with 350 professionals to improve their understanding of the needs of LGBT+ victims and survivors of abuse.

  • 3


    We released 3 key pieces of formal research - LGBT+ Hate Crime Report 2021, LGBT+ Domestic Abuse Service Provision Mapping Study, The Use of Sexual Violence as an Attempt to Convert or Punish LGBT+ People in the UK

The service was fantastic. My wife and I were listened to, treated with respect and understood. The advisor was emphatic, knowledgeable and effective. Our experience was understood and validated. We were reassured and treated seriously. After months of being ignored by police and housing department which left us at the mercy of the abuser having someone who took us seriously meant a lot, gave us hope and allowed us to manage better.
