While the Home Office has provided over £980,000 of funding to specialist LGBT+ organisations for the provision of domestic abuse services between 2016 and 2020, information on the total number of dedicated local services in England and Wales for LGBT+ victims and survivors of domestic abuse is not held centrally.

The DA Commissioner has however agreed to seek to survey and get a better understanding of local DA service provision in her new role.
