L.G.B.T.

North Lanarkshire Women’s Aid are LGBT inclusive and we support all self-identifying women experiencing domestic abuse in lesbian or heterosexual relationships.  We know it can be hard to reach out for help, but we can offer you emotional and practical support.

Domestic Abuse within non-heterosexual relationships might be experienced in similar ways to heterosexual relationships, with the abusive partner using different tactics to try and gain power and control.  This can make it incredibly difficult for the victim-survivor to ask for help or talk about their experiences with their usual support network.

We can be contacted on 01236 730992 or email nlwaid@aol.com.
