Rainbow Bridge - Victim Support

Rainbow Bridge is a Victim Support run service that specifically supports victims of domestic abuse who identify as Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender in Cardiff and The Vale. This includes abuse from intimate partners, ex partners (also heterosexual ex partners) and family relatives.

We can provide emotional support to victims of domestic abuse who identify as LGBT(+) that is victim led and individually tailored to meet individual need. The support can be via face to face, telephone, SMS or email. We can also offer an array of other services such as advocacy, personal and home security, and an empowerment service focussed on engagement and mentoring.

All support is free and confidential and is delivered through specialist trained volunteers. As of March 2016 there will be Independent Domestic Violence Advocate (IDVA) qualified support available for higher risk victims.

Our Mission

  • To support victims of domestic abuse from the LGB&T community.
  • To empower and increase confidence levels of the LGB&T community to access support and Criminal Justice agencies.
  • To raise awareness of the issue and increase referrals for support across the board.
