“LGBT people experience domestic violence too…”

Rainbow ribbonThat’s the message going out to the whole of the UK during February’s LGBT history month as Broken Rainbow UK launch their National Rainbow Ribbon Campaign in partnership with White Ribbon UK.

Broken Rainbow UK runs the only National lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender (LGBT) Domestic Violence Helpline and offers support to LGBT communities, their friends, family, perpetrators and agencies working in the domestic violence sector. The White Ribbon Campaign is the UK branch of the international campaign working to reduce violence against women.

This exciting partnership with Broken Rainbow UK builds on their work, and includes raising awareness of domestic violence in same sex relationships as well; an area so often ignored, and misunderstood. Simply wearing the Rainbow Ribbon, or displaying it, shows you are helping to make a difference to the lives of LGBT people affected by domestic violence.

If you would like support, then call: The National Broken Rainbow LGBT DV Helpline - 0300 999 5428, Open Monday and Thursday 2pm – 8pm and Wednesday 10am – 5pm. Or visit www.broken-rainbow.org.uk Broken Rainbow UK Office on 08452 60 55 60 or email mail@broken-rainbow.org.uk
