Loving Me – Domestic Abuse Service

Loving Me is a service which provides one-to-one support and advocacy, for Trans and Non-Binary victims of domestic abuse or sexual violence who are aged 18 and over and live in England. They provide high quality support by trained specialists who understand the specific needs of the trans community as well as abuse and are a by-and-for service. The service is user-led which means that they provide support based on what the individual would like or needs.

They define domestic abuse as violence, abuse or controlling behaviour perpetrated by a partner, ex-partner or family member. This can be physical, emotional, financial or sexual. They also support people affected by so called ‘honour’-based violence and forced marriage.

You can contact them by phone, email or using the live chat on their website. You can also make an online self-referral or make a professional referral for someone else with consent.
