About LGTB: The LGBT Domestic Abuse Project has been funded by the Scottish Government as a project working on LGBT Domestic Abuse. 

The initial phase of the project was the creation of this website as a resource for all service providers currently supporting, working with or planning services for people experiencing domestic abuse.  The project has also piloted LGBT Domestic Abuse training  in 3 areas of Scotland, which has now been expanded to reach other areas of Scotland.  For more information please go to the Training section of the website.

There are lots of areas of work that need to be tackled in terms of LGBT Domestic Abuse, the project’s approach has been chosen as a means of reaching as many people as possible.  The project’s aim is for every LGBT person experiencing domestic abuse to receive a good response, regardless of which service provider they access.  This is in line with the aims of the Scottish Government’s National Training Strategy.
