Beyond abuse: LGBT accommodation-based domestic abuse services

Brighton

This is one of four reports from the Beyond Abuse project. This document is the report from Brighton and Hove.

As part of the Beyond Abuse- LGBT (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Trans) accommodation based domestic abuse services, RISE have been providing a support service within the Brighton and Hove area. Similar projects were funded in the Greater Manchester Area and the in the London Borough of Hammersmith & Fulham. LGBT Foundation and Stonewall Housing provided these services. Due to all running similar projects through the same funder, a national partnership was formed between all three agencies.

Locally, RISE partnered with Southdown Housing and were supported in furnishing the refuge flats by Sussex Beacon.
