As a part of LGBT History Month- join us for a dog walk!
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.
Hate crime can include verbal or written abuse, harassment and assault. We know all homophobia, biphobia and transphobia is wrong and any information you have could help prevent more. Even if you don’t want to go to the police yourself, we can liaise with them and you can remain anonymous.
Abuse from family, partners, and ex-partners does happen in our communities. Galop is a safe space to talk and think about what you want away from pressure at home. We can help you to explore your options, plan to make you safer, look for safe housing and speak with the police.
Sexual abuse can happen once or several times and involves unwanted contact of a sexual nature between two or more people. This can happen within families, partnerships, acquaintance or date rape, or as part of homophobic/ transphobic attacks. We can offer you offer listening and support as you come to terms with your experience. ...
Galop works with London’s LGBT Jigsaw project to provide support for young LGBT people who have experienced violence and are at threat of homelessness. Galop can provide emotional support, practical assistance, advocacy, referrals, and help reporting incidents to the police, depending on your situation. All these services are free and confidential.
Regular and sustained harassment can take the form of physical, verbal or written abuse, either in person or behind your back. It can be an exhausting, isolating and scary experience, but we can give you support and advice as well as help you find ways to deal with the harassment.
The police have made huge leaps forward, but things don’t always go the way they should. Galop can help you to put problems right with the police. We can give you advice and information on your options or make a formal complaint on your behalf if you’re unhappy about something the police have done.
Galop can help you if you have questions about criminal convictions or are concerned about Criminal Records Bureau (CRB) checks. We can also support you if you have to go to court as a victim or witness, and we can even make a criminal injuries compensation claim on your behalf. If you need help ...
