Rainbow Project: The needs of LBT+ survivors of domestic abuse

Galop staff will conduct a focus group with LBT+ domestic violence survivors to ensure that their voices and needs are incorporated into a curricula shaping a 10 week educational group work programme that removes the barriers that LBT+ women face when accessing non specialist services.

The focus group will allow survivors to define the resources that have been helpful in promoting their safety and empowerment, any concerns they have about experiences in accessing services, organizations and agencies; needs that have not been met; and their own suggestions for promoting safety and empowerment of survivors of domestic violence.

The focus group is run in partnership with Birmingham LGBT+ as part of their Rainbow Project. It will convene between 5-10 participants and will be moderated by experienced practitioners and LGBT+ domestic abuse caseworkers.

Date/Time: Tuesday, 30th July, 5pm – 6.30pm.  

Place: Resource for London, 356 Holloway Road, N7 6PA.

Your participation is voluntary. Informed consent will be obtained from all survivors choosing to participate.

Galop will reimburse travel expenses (preferably public transport) to all participants. You will also receive a £20 gift voucher to say thank you. Get in touch via jasna@galop.org.uk for more info/ to register.
