Supporting Lgbt+ Survivors of VAWDASV 1day Courses
SafeLives data shows that Lgbt+ survivors of VAWDASV present with higher levels of risk and complex needs by the time they access support. We also know that LGBT+ victims/survivors are not experiencing domestic abuse in isolation. There are high rates of poly victimisation; repeat experiences of abuse and discrimination over their lifetime.
“They wouldn’t accept that he was in a gay relationship. He felt very outraged... When the person behind the counter spoke to my client, he said, “oh your friend”, it wasn’t his friend, it was his partner, and that’s still happening out there, even in the professional sector.”
The Dyn Project, from the SafeLives SpotLight report Free to be SafeThis course will increase your understanding of the dynamics of VAWDASV and how abuse may be experienced by Lgbt+ survivors. It will encourage you to consider how identity may impact on a person's experience of abuse, possible barriers to making disclosures or accessing support and specific risk factors you need may to consider.
