Supporting LGBTQ victims and survivors of domestic violence and abuse through awareness, education and breaking down barriers to accessing help.

Get Involved

More than 50% of LGBTQ people will experience domestic, family or intimate partner violence and abuse in their lifetime.

Sadly, despite the prevalence, LGBTQ people are less likely to identify domestic or family violence in their relationships, less likely to report it to the police or seek support from services, and are far less likely to find support services that meet their specific needs.

We are losing too many lives and too many others are suffering in silence.

With your support, we can ensure victims and survivors are seen, believed, supported and given hope, no matter what their sexuality or gender identity.

“As someone who has overcome LGBTQ DV, finding this page and resource has been incredible. I spent years not knowing if it was possible for abuse from another woman to be counted as domestic violence. So thank you and I will continue to speak loud, share these resources and support this amazing cause!!”

“Acknowledging the importance of the role gender inequality in understanding intimate partner violence must not blind us to the fact that male perpetrator/female victim is not the only model of domestic violence. In fact, rates of violence in LGBTI communities are at least equal to rates in heterosexual relationships. Efforts and resources to end family violence must recognise this.”
