Domestic abuse national #YouAreNotAlone translated campaign materials

HM Government’s national domestic abuse campaign #YouAreNotAlone has developed translated assets for use by all agencies.

The Brandworkz portal includes translated assets in the following languages: Welsh, Urdu, Punjabi, Hindi, Bengali, Gujarati, Mandarin, Farsi, Arabic, Somali, Polish, Romanian, Spanish, Italian, Tamil and French.

Translated assets are available here and English assets can be found here.

Please share the above information with your networks, to ensure the message reaches different communities and those for whom English is not their first language.

Galop LGBT+ resources and survey now live

Galop has launched an online survey to understand how LGBT+ people’s relationships have been affected by the Covid-19 lockdown measures and to ensure they are included and represented. The results will shape support that is being provided and will help identify future support priorities.

The survey is open to anyone who identifies as LGBT+ and is 16 and above. The deadline to complete is 1 July, 2020, and the survey can be accessed here. There are also links to share the survey on Twitter and Facebook.
Please circulate this survey among your professional networks, colleagues and service users.

If you have any questions regarding this survey or would like to provide any feedback, please email the Galop team.

Galop information sheets

Galop has also published information sheets for LGBT+ survivors of domestic abuse and professionals, aimed at recognising LGBT+ survivor’s experiences, challenging stereotypes and highlighting barriers to accessing services. They also support LGBT+ survivors to access help safely and find advice at the start of their help-seeking journey. The fact sheets can be downloaded via the links below.

Support for Survivors
Staying safe online when accessing LGBT+ domestic abuse support
Emergency accommodation and housing support for LGBT+ Survivors of domestic abuse
Domestic abuse and the LGBT+ communities

Support for Professionals
Barriers faced by LGBT+ people in accessing Non-LGBT+ domestic abuse support
Myths and stereotypes about partner abuse among LGBT+ people
Domestic abuse and LGBT+ communities

In addition Galop have produced two additional fact-sheets for professionals on coping strategies and leaving an abusive partner or family. Please contact Galop if you would like to receive copies of these. They are not available online as they contain sensitive information on options available to survivors which could impact a survivor’s potential safety.
