Domestic abuse happens in many different ways, and it can be hard to realise what you're going through is actually abuse. If you are frightened or concerned about the way a partner, ex-partner or family member is treating you, there are organisations out there ready to help.

Broken Rainbow

Broken Rainbow runs a national LGBT domestic abuse helpline which provides confidential support to all members of the LGBT community, their family, friends and agencies supporting them. You can call them on 0300 999 5428

LGBT Youth Scotland

LGBT Youth Scotland also runs a project on LGBT domestic abuse in Scotland, focused on helping service providers help people who are experiencing abuse. Their website also has links to many organisations which can help.

How to report domestic abuse

If the incident requires immediate attention please contact your local police office. In an emergency always call 999 (if the incident is ongoing or life is in danger).
