Intercom Trust is a charity specifically supporting lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender individuals in the South West. The staff and volunteers work to champion equality and diversity at work and in the community and support individuals who need their specific help for whatever reason.

Domestic abuse within LGBT+ relationships occurs as frequently, if not more frequently, as in heterosexual relationships, but LGBT+ victims are less likely to make a report. Their reluctance to come forward may be heightened by a fear of not being believed or feeling that available support will not understand their circumstances. Intercom Trust provides a confidential, non-judgemental support service with access to an IDVA specifically for the LGBT+ community called the Safer Rainbow Project.
