South Yorkshire Police: Sexual Abuse and Sexual Violence Awareness Week 2020

Today for both Sexual Abuse and Sexual Violence Week and LGBT history month, we’re highlighting the brilliant work the Call it Out Project at SAYiT does in support of those in the LGBT+ community who have been affected by domestic abuse and/or sexual violence. The charity aims to raise awareness of issues affecting the community, as well as educating those at risk on how to spot the signs of abuse, and where they can access help and support when they need it, including reporting to the police.

5 Live Investigates LGBT Domestic Abuse

The LGBT people trapped in abusive relationships because they say the police don’t take them seriously and they can’t access support services. 5 live Investigates has discovered the number of gay, bisexual and trans men and women involved in recorded domestic abuse crimes is going up. But experts say the figures represent only a fraction of the abuse in the LGBT community. One LGBT domestic abuse charity has told the programme it’s seeing more than double the number of victims it was seeing five years ago. But thousands don’t bother reporting because they think they’ll get a negative response from the police.
