WHO WE ARE:
The LGBTQ Domestic Violence Awareness Foundation is a charity comprised of a collective of passionate individuals, desperate to shine a light on an epidemic that’s been plaguing LQBTQ communities for far too long.
Although limited, research has indicated that over 60% of LGBTQ people have experienced domestic, family and intimate partner violence. This needs to change! And we know, even without statistics, there is a fundamental lack of awareness, representation and understanding that this abuse is this so prevalent. Because of this, LGBTQ people feel unseen and often have limited resources to draw from to get help.
It is the ambition of LGBTQ Domestic Violence Awareness Foundation to confront these issues and to advocate for necessary changes in both the visibility of LGBTQ people’s experiences and the quality of response they receive when reaching out for help. We aim to create change and bring greater awareness to the issues to ensure that all people no matter their sexuality or gender identity can feel seen and believed and receive safe and inclusive support
