The Partnership

The London LGBT Domestic Abuse Partnership (DAP) is a way for LGBT victims/survivors of domestic abuse to get the maximum amount of help with a minimum amount of hassle. The DAP is open to any LGBT person experiencing domestic violence who is living or working in London.

The DAP is made up of 4 LGBT agencies who each provide different services for LGBT victims/survivors of domestic abuse. With one phone call, you will be linked in with Stonewall Housing, Galop, London Lesbian and Gay Switchboard, and London Friend. Everything you tell the DAP is confidential, and all our services are provided free of charge. You’ll have access to a range of services including:

  • Advice and safety planning
  • Housing advice, including options on finding safe accommodation
  • Emotional support
  • Free one-to-one Counselling
  • Support and assistance with dealing with the police
  • Help reporting incidents
  • Legal advice on civil or criminal protection (e.g., non-molestation orders)
  • Support through civil and criminal court system
  • Help finding solicitors
  • Advice on child safety and child contact issues
  • Specific support around sexual abuse
  • Translation service available to those who do not have English as a first language

 

If you don’t live or work in London, you can still call the National LGBT Domestic Abuse Helpline:
