We are offering single 1:1 support sessions to assist individuals in finding the right service or path for them, and fully funded LGBT+ and domestic abuse specialist counselling .

What is Domestic Abuse and how does it relate to my life?  

Many people don’t realise that what they’re seeing could be abusive behaviour. It used to be that people only recognised physical violence, but now the law recognises so much more.  

This includes sexual or intimate partner abuse, financial control, manipulation and coercion, and can come from a partner, family member or other significant person in your life.  

At least 1 in 10 members of the LGBT+ community will experience domestic abuse. 

For either service, self-referrals are welcome, as are referrals from professionals supporting LGBT+ people.

This can be arranged by contacting The Centre.
