Call for Participation in the LGBTQIA+ Domestic Abuse Survey

In the realm of domestic abuse, the LGBTQIA+ community faces unique challenges that often go unnoticed. A recent survey conducted by Stonewall revealed startling statistics: 1 in 4 Gay or Lesbian individuals, 1 in 3 Bisexual individuals, and a staggering 1 in 2 Trans individuals will experience some form of domestic abuse in their lifetime. Despite these alarming numbers, domestic abuse services in Oxfordshire report a significant lack of referrals from within the LGBTQIA+ community, even though Oxford city boasts one of the largest LGBTQIA+ populations in the country.
