Domestic Violence Abuse

LGBT communities have changed radically. Within the last ten years, new legislation has given LGBT communities rights and equalities that we could not have imagined only a few decades ago. We have become confident and bold, challenging oppression and able to make demands.

 

However, we are only just beginning to acknowledge the presence of domestic abuse and domestic violence within our community.

 

Unity Group Wales is dedicated to bringing the issue out into the open, raising awareness, and offering help and support to those whose lives have been affected by domestic violence or domestic abuse.

 

Our objective is to relieve the distress and suffering caused to lesbians, gay men, bisexual and transgender people by domestic violence and abuse, in particular but not exclusively by doing the following:

 

Raising awareness in the LGBT communities and elsewhere of the impact of homophobic, transphobic, biphobic and same sex domestic violence and abuse on the lives of LGBT people;

 

Offering advice, support and referral services to LGBT people experiencing homophobic, transphobic, biphobic and same sex domestic violence and abuse;

 

Offering information, advice and training to people who are responsible for domestic violence policy and practice in mainstream and specialist organisations, or who are otherwise involved with the survivors and perpetrators of those suffering from domestic violence or abuse, with a view to increasing the physical safety and mental well-being of LGBT people who experience such violence or abuse.
