Domestic and family violence is increasingly being seen as an important issue in LGBTIQ communities. As information about LGBTIQ domestic and family violence increases, the demands on a wide range of services will also increase.
Services such as the police and courts, domestic violence and sexual assault services, women's health centres, general health services and LGBTIQ community groups are all likely to experience a growth in demand.
These pages are designed to help workers and services better understand LGBTIQ domestic and family violence and therefore provide the best possible help and support to LGBTIQ people and their friends and families.
The Inner City Legal Centre, ACON, and LGBTIQ Domestic and Family Violence Interagency have produced a number of resources on LGBTIQ domestic and family violence. These resources are available to download here.
