It is with regret that due to the rise of Covid-19 cases, we will no longer be providing a presence at this year’s Cornwall Pride in the interest of the safety of our staff and the future of our service delivery.
If you are a member of the LGBT+ community, we are here to support you. We are currently recruiting for a dedicated Independent Domestic Violence Advisor (IDVA) LGBT+ in partnership with Barnardo’s in Cornwall to deliver the county-wide Domestic Abuse and Sexual Violence Service ‘Safer Futures’.
Safer Futures and Intercom Trust are working in partnership to launch an exciting new pilot scheme ‘The Safer Rainbow Project’.
The designated LGBT+ IDVA will work with people to reduce the risk of further domestic abuse, this can include safety planning. It can also include support with housing, signposting to health and wellbeing services, support with attending court and reporting to the police if appropriate.
We want to provide members of the LGBT+ communities with a service that understands their needs and to discuss options to be safer.
