Age UK Isle of Wight’s website hosts an ‘LGBT+ Info Hub’ offering impartial advice on LGBT+ Rights, Health & Wellbeing, Trans Info & Advice and also Hate Crime & Domestic Abuse support.
Since the beginning of the pandemic, reporting of abuse has dropped by 50% and whilst many other aspects of our day to day lives have moved into the virtual world, its not a leap to assume that so has this abuse.
