It may not be clear if what is happening to you is stalking. This information may address some questions you may have about stalking behaviour.

understanding LGBT+ experiences

LGBT+ people experiencing domestic abuse might feel that domestic abuse services are not for them or may not understand what has happened to them. We’ve compiled some helpful advice.

“My caseworker was amazing start to finish. She was always there if I needed to speak. She opened my eyes into what coercive control actually is and what was happening in my life and being done to me. I was in denial before and I didn’t think it was to the extent it was. She got me the answers and the help that I needed. I could always ring her up and she would support me.”

we're here for you.
