Why High Risk?
At Loving me we take a risk led approach to domestic abuse, right now 100’000 people in England and wales are at risk of begin seriously harmed or murdered by their partner. Although there is little research into TNB DV in the UK a large study evidenced that Trans women were five times more likely than cis women to have experienced physical or sexual intimate partner violence in the last year.
Due to this and the lack of current support available to TNB people we believe that those at the greatest risk of serious harm and injury due to DA, should get urgent help. This means that every victim at high risk should have a dedicated DV professional supporting and advocating for them to become safe and well. And it means frontline services must work together to support and protect them and their family.
