Event Full Details: Are you a gay or bisexual man over 16 living in Manchester? Have you experienced domestic violence or abuse? We need your views to improve services! 

Manchester City Council are currently reviewing their approach to supporting survivors of domestic violence or abuse. As part of this a number of focus groups will be held for different communities across the city to make sure everybody's views and needs are taken into account. - Could you help bring to the fore some of the experiences or issues gay or bisexual men have when trying to access support? 

The focus group will take place in a safe space and we won't ask about your personal experience of domestic violence or abuse in detail. We're mainly interested in what services or support you have or haven't used, and your experiences of the support system as a whole. You don't have to disclose anything you don't feel comfortable with, and everything you say will be treated in strictest confidence. 

To take part in the focus group just come along on 21st July at 5:30pm. There is no need to RSVP. If you can't make it on 21st July or would prefer a one-on-one interview, we can schedule this in on 17th July between 5 and 7pm.
