Support For LGBTQ+ survivors

In 2016-17, Refuge supported 178 LGBTQ+ people.

Of these, the majority (128) received specialist help and support from our dedicated team of Independent Domestic Violence Advocates (IDVAs).

“I have found support from my IDVA amazing. I could not have asked for anyone better. My IDVA really understood me and calmed me down when I was feeling lost. When we would speak I would feel relaxed, and as though my worries were taken away.”

Take someone’s worries away today – sign up for a fundraising pack, and start organising your own fundraising event in support of Refuge.
