Officials in the Office of the Deputy Prime Minister have had brief discussions with Broken Rainbow in 2004 in relation to the establishment of emergency refuge accommodation for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people fleeing from domestic violence. Officials from the Government Office for London have also met representatives from Broken Rainbow this month to discuss plans for a refuge service in London.

As there is no central revenue funding for such schemes, Broken Rainbow has been advised of alternative funding streams and to make contact with the relevant local authorities to put forward the case for such a service.
