LGBT+ survivors of domestic abuse are an isolated and marginalised community with unmet needs. One consequence for many is homelessness, and increased vulnerability.
Brighton and Manchester have both been identified as beacon sites to which LGBT+ people may travel and seek safe spaces. Currently, there are very few services responding to the specific needs of LGBT+ victims / survivors of abuse.
The aim of this initiative is to increase the provision of services to meet the needs of LGBT+ victims / survivors of domestic abuse in Brighton, Manchester and London.
Our intention is to provide dispersed accommodation with support for LGBT+ victims / survivors of abuse in each of these areas.
Our funding partners for this project are:
- Brighton and Hove Council
- London Borough of Hammersmith and FUlham
- Manchester City Council
- Department of Communities and Local Government
The delivery partners are:
- Brighton Rise
- LGBT Foundation
- Commissioners from Brighton and Hove City Council, London Borough of Hammersmith and Fulham, and Manchester City Council
