Domestic Violence Survey and Focus groups

Tues 24th / Wed 25th April* Improving services for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people experiencing domestic violence and abuse - (phone for full venue details). 6-8pm Central Bristol

The council is working in partnership with the University of the West of England and LGBT Bristol to understand the reasons into why many victims of domestic abuse in same sex relationships don’t seek help from agencies?

This project is supported by LGBT Bristol, ShoutOut radio, Missing Lesbians, Out Bristol, North Bristol NHS Trust, the Greater Western Ambulance Service, UWE LGBT staff network and domestic abuse agencies. There is a clear commitment from all the agencies supporting this research to act on the findings.

If you are lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender and have experience of being in an abusive relationship, we would very much like you to take part in this project. If you have supported someone who is LGBT through an abusive relationship, we would also like you to be part of the project.

We would like you to complete a questionnaire by downloading a questionnaire from www.bristol.gov.uk/lgbtdva
