A webinar for health of VCSE professionals who may work with LBT women experiencing domestic and/or sexual violence.
In this session Catherine Bewley from Galop, the UK’s LGBT+ anti-violence and abuse charity, will provide an introduction to the experiences and needs of LBT women and non-binary people who have experienced domestic abuse and/or sexual violence. LBT and non-binary people are particularly invisible within service provision and they often feel that their particular experiences, needs and perspectives are not well understood. This session will provide an introduction for professionals who want to recognise and respond more effectively to LBT and non-binary survivors.
Catherine Bewley is Head of Sexual Violence and Young People’s Support Services at Galop. The services work with all LGBT+ people aged 13 and above who have experienced sexual abuse, violence and exploitation; intimate partner violence; honour based abuse and forced marriage; child abuse linked to faith and belief; so-called ‘corrective practices’; and homophobia, biphobia and transphobia. Galop has published many reports, including the 2020 Transphobia Hate Crime Report, a report into the effects of the Covid19 pandemic on LGBT+ people’s safety in March 2021, and the first National Research into LGBT+ People’s Experiences of Sexual Violence in summer 2021.
