In partnership with Burrell Street NHS Sexual Health Clinic, METRO's LGBT domestic abuse service is offering the first LGBT Domestic Abuse drop-in service located within a sexual health setting.
We have recorded a significant rise in cases of non-consensual sex/sexual violence and domestic abuse linked with chem use amongst men who have sex with men (MSM). Our new service in north Southwark will provide early recognition, intervention and confidential specialist support to a larger number of victims affected by domestic abuse.
The service runs every Tuesday between 10:00am - 12:00pm

Joe - Mentoring
The programme had such an impact on my life that I decided to come on board as a volunteer mentor!
Peter- First Point
I felt so relieved to have a named First Point worker who I can call if I need to be referred to a particular service.
Kwasi - Mentoring
During the 6 month programme, I developed a close relationship with my mentor. Knowing that I would have to talk to him honestly about what I did in the previous 2 weeks somehow forced me to be safe every time I had an encounter.
Simon - Mentoring
By discussing things at such an intimate level with my mentor, I really came face to face with some of the reasons why I was taking chances before.
Joan - First Point
Thank you so much for taking time to listen to me and truly understand how I am feeling. This is the only appointment I've had regarding HIV that didnít feel rushed.

I wish this service was around when I was newly diagnosed. I felt my world had fallen apart around me and I didn't know which way to turn for support. You are offering a very valuable service.
