The LGBT+ Domestic Abuse Survivors Forum 

Experiencing domestic abuse can feel lonely. This can be harder for LGBT+ survivors who may not know any other LGBT+ people who have been through family or relationship abuse. For some people, part of recovering from the impact of domestic abuse is connecting with others and sharing experiences. The forum allows you to do this safely with people who understand and have been there too.  

This forum is for any LGBT+ survivor of domestic abuse. It is here for you to read others posts, share your own experiences and support other survivors. If you feel you want to participate in the conversations you can sign up and write posts. You can read posts without signing up. The forum is safe, moderated and anonymous.

AI ChatBot

If you are experiencing or at risk of domestic abuse, or think you might be, our chatbot is here to help, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.  It can signpost you to local or national support services and advice lines, provide information and guidance on healthy relationships, explain what constitutes abuse, and give you information on your options.  

Sometimes it’s difficult to understand when a relationship becomes abusive, what’s happening to you, or what to do when you’re experiencing domestic abuse. Our chatbot can help you navigate your options and keep you safe. You will remain completely anonymous, and the service is completely confidential.
