    Direct engagement

    We engaged directly with 3,067 LGBT+ people to empower and educate them on their rights, how to recognise abuse, and where to get support. We also distributed thousands of resources, to reach out as far as possible into our community.

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.
