The majority of the domestic violence awareness movement has focused on heterosexual relationships, in the past members of the LGBTQ+ community have been largely left out of the movement.
Research shows that LGBTQ members fall victim to domestic violence at equal or even higher rates compared to their heterosexual counterparts.

We are pleased to announce, thanks to funding from @miltonkeynescouncil , we now have an Independent Domestic Abuse Advisor who is a LGBTQ+ Specialist.

If you are from the LGBTQ+ community and you are experiencing domestic abuse please contact us for help and support. #domesticabuse #lgbtq🌈 #lgbtqhistorymonth #miltonkeynes #pridemonth
