It is recommended practice for Nottingham City practitioners to utilise additional risk considerations when risk assessing LGBT+ survivors. The current risk assessment process for all people experiencing domestic abuse is through the DASH RIC (Domestic Abuse Stalking Harassment Risk Indicator Checklist), it is recognised, however, that for some survivors there will be additional risk considerations. This briefing session explores additional risk factors and considerations for LGBT+ people experiencing domestic abuse.
• To introduce additional risk considerations for LGBT+ survivors of domestic abuse
• To explore how these can be utilised alongside the DASH RIC
• To improve understanding of the needs of LGBT+ survivors of domestic abuse
