The London LGBT Domestic Abuse Partnership (DAP) is a way for LGBT victims/suvivors of domestic abuse to get the maximum amount of help with a minimum amount of hassle.
The DAP is made of 5 LGBT agencies who each provide different services for LGBT victims/survivors of domestic abuse. With one phone call, you will be linked in with Stonewall Housing, Galop, Pace, London Lesbian and Gay Switchboard and Broken Rainbow. Everything you tell the DAP is completely confidential and all our services are provided free of charge.
