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, Switchboard – LGBT+ Helpline, 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:
