ABOUT LGBTQ DOMESTIC VIOLENCE AWARENESS FOUNDATION
We are a strong voice for LGBTQ+ domestic violence victims and survivors, working to end domestic, family and intimate partner violence and abuse within LGBTQ+ communities.
We are a registered charity, founded in 2020, and are committed to shining a light on an epidemic that’s plagued LGBTQ+ communities for far too long.
Propelled by passionate volunteers and governed by a Board of Directors, we strive to overcome a fundamental lack of awareness, representation and understanding about the prevalence of this abuse.
We work tirelessly to provide education, information and resources to support services, workplaces, bystanders and survivors.
We know that visibility is the key.
By cultivating a culture of awareness, we can create real and meaningful change.
Our mission is to ensure everyone – no matter their sexuality or gender identity – feels seen and believed and receives safe and inclusive support.
