Who does the service support?

Galop is London’s LGBT anti-violence & abuse charity. We give advice and support to people who have experienced biphobia, homophobia, transphobia, sexual violence or domestic abuse.  We also support lesbian, gay, bi, trans and queer people who have had problems with the police or have questions about the criminal justice system.  We are a completely  independent community-led group and we are not connected to the police. You can contact us anonymously if you choose.

What can you expect from the Service?

If you need advice, or just want to get something off your chest, you can talk to us. Galop is a space to talk and get options, even when you feel there aren't any. We will never pressure you in to taking any action you aren't comfortable with and we won't share information about you unless you want us to.

You may have already tried to get help from the police or others. You may not be sure what's happening or you're dissatisfied with the response. We can fight your corner, help get what you need or record what happened.

Galop can advocate for you- meaning we'll act on your behalf and try our hardest to get you the outcome you want. Advocacy involves speaking up for you with other organisations such as the police or local council.

How do you get involvement from the service/who can refer/request involvement?

You can get in touch directly.

What happens after the service has been involved?

The service will hear you out and help you accordingly whether that is through listening, helping in reporting, advice on the law and how the police work, applying for financial compensation for victims of crime, specialist advocacy and support etc.

What can parents, children and young people, families do if they are not eligible for the service/schools don't feel they can refer to this service?

Galop is a space to talk and get options, even when you feel there aren't any.
