Welcome to Galop, the LGBT+ anti-violence charity.
If you’ve experienced hate crime, sexual violence or domestic abuse, we’re here for you. 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. Anything you tell us is confidential, and you can contact us anonymously if you choose.
