1 in 4 LGBTQI+ people report that they have been victims of intimate partner/domestic abuse.  You don't have to be living with your partner to experience abuse.  You might be experiencing threats from someone that you just meet for sex, or maybe a partner you don't live with is making you do things by threatening to 'out' you to your children?

LGBTQI+ people live in a society that can be heterosexist and homophobic.  Many LGBTQI+ people may have had negative experiences with services or service providers, or may be fearful of the Police and other statutory organisations. NDAS does not discriminate. NDAS supports all victims of domestic/intimate partner violence and/or abuse.  Lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans-men and women are supported by our team of trained professional practitioners.

For support or advice anyone can call the NDAS contact line, 01434 608030 from 9am-4.30pm Monday to Friday, or refer themselves by using the self-referral form,
