LGBT IDVA & Safeguarding Level 3 Workshop

‘Domestic Abuse can happen to anyone. Did you know 1 in 4 people within LGBT relationships are affected by domestic abuse? The Dash charity now have a specialist LGBT IDVA to support those within the LGBT communities who are experiencing or have experienced abuse within their relationships. We recognise that there are a number of limitations to the LGBT communities reaching out for support and The Dash Charity aim to reduce these and provide an inclusive service for anyone needing help. For more information, please call our helpline on 01753549865. There is no pride in domestic abuse.’

We have recently had a male outreach worker join The Dash Charity team to work with men who are experiencing or have experienced domestic abuse. We’re very fortunate to be able to offer this dedicated service, and hope it will result in more male victims feeling comfortable enough to seek out advice.

Our Hospital IDVA recently conducted a Safeguarding Level 3 Workshop for Wexham Park Hospital. The team used three real life case studies to look at best practices and lessons to be learnt.
