LGBTQ Domestic Violence Awareness Foundation

Short Description
Supporting LGBTQ victims and survivors of domestic violence and abuse through awareness, education and breaking down barriers to accessing help.

Education is crucial if we are to succeed in ending domestic violence. There is a need for LGBTQ specific domestic violence education to reduce the barriers to reporting, and to address low rates of reporting and support seeking from victims.

It is essential that organisations and individuals better understand the unique needs of LGBTQ people and tactics of abuse used in LGBTQ relationships, to reduce the barriers that prevent victims from identifying and reporting abuse in their relationships and seeking support.

We are working to develop educational resources for frontline workers, domestic violence support services, workplaces, and the broader community to help support them to better understand how they can ensure LGBTQ people are safely supported if they experience domestic or family violence.
