December Survivor Space open for bookings

Switchboard is inviting LGBTQ+ survivors of domestic abuse to reflect on 2023 at our free December Survivor Space event.

Our Domestic Abuse team will host the session from 11am until 2pm on Monday 18 December at Community Base, 113 Queens Road, Brighton, BN1 3XG.

They will invite group members to mark the end of the year and chat about how to keep safe during the holiday season when many services are closed.

The team will also host their open, shared space, giving every participant the opportunity to share their thoughts and feelings in a confidential, safe environment.

Tea, coffee and cake will be available and there will be a chance to have fun playing festive-themed games.

You can reserve your place here.

Our Survivor Spaces are peer-support events co-produced with attendees. A Switchboard independent domestic violence advocate (IDVA) facilitates, guides conversation and provides support if required. The sessions are not therapeutic spaces, and the group agreement is reviewed at the beginning of each session.

Domestic abuse can look different to every person. If you are not sure this space is right for you, please email [email protected] for a friendly chat.

Please use the same email address if you have any questions.
