Beyond Abuse

LGBTQ+ 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 LGBTQ+ people may travel and seek safe spaces. Currently, there are very few services responding to the specific needs of LGBTQ+ victims / survivors of abuse.

The aim of this initiative is to increase the provision of services to meet the needs of LGBTQ+ victims / survivors of domestic abuse in Brighton, Manchester and London.

Our intention is to provide dispersed accommodation with support for LGBTQ+ victims / survivors of abuse in each of these areas.
