Support for the LGBT+ community
Our support is for anyone and everyone who is experiencing domestic abuse and sexual violence. We are an inclusive service so if you live in Bradford, identify as LGBT+, and you need help, we are here for you.
We have a specialist LGBT+ Advocate who is also a member of the LGBT+ community. Our staff are trained by The Equity Partnership to gain a greater awareness of the specific challenges facing the LGBT+ community.
If you feel that you would be more comfortable speaking to a specific LGBT+ charity about your experiences then there are the following organisations:
Galop who run the national LGBT domestic violence helpline – 0800 999 5428, available Monday / Tuesday / Friday 10:00am – 5:00pm, Wednesday / Thursday 10:00am – 8:00pm or email them on firstname.lastname@example.org.

We are a domestic abuse and sexual violence charity working across the Bradford area. We support women, men and children who are survivors of domestic abuse and sexual violence.
We know that people experiencing domestic abuse heal quicker from the trauma if they can continue living in their own home with their support networks around them. Our service works to keep victims in their homes- hence our name Staying Put.
Solace Housing is a subsidiary of Staying Put. Their mission is to transform lives by providing housing to those who have experienced domestic abuse, with short- and long-term options. Their inclusive homes are for anyone who needs them.
