‘Domestic violence' is a general term to describe a range of behaviour often used by one person to control and dominate another with whom they have, or have had, a close or family relationship and in which the abuser operates from a position of perceived power.
It includes forms of violent and controlling behaviour such as: physical assault, sexual abuse, rape, threats and intimidation, harassment, humiliating and controlling behaviour, withholding of finances, economic manipulation, deprivation, isolation, belittling and constant unreasonable criticism.
Broken Rainbow is an LGBT charity whose objective is to relieve the distress and suffering caused to lesbians, gay men, bisexual and transgender people by domestic violence and abuse, raising awareness in the LGBT community and elsewhere of the impact of homophobic, transphobic and same sex domestic violence on the lives of LGBT people.
If you are experiencing domestic violence in a same-sex relationship you can still call LLGS and receive the high standard of support that our volunteers provide. However domestic violence can be a complex issue, and volunteers answering calls on the Broken Rainbow helpline have undergone additional training on the subject of domestic violence.
Their helpline is open at the following times:
Monday: 2pm - 8pm
Wednesday: 10am - 5pm
Thursday: 2pm - 8pm
You can also click on their logo above and it will take you to their website where you will find more information on all the services they provide.
