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.

Hate Crime

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.

Internet difficulties

We are having on-going internet difficulties at present. The best way to contact us is to call the office (020 7704 6767) or the Shoutline (020 7704 2040) and we will get your message to the staff member concerned. Our sincere apologies about this. We are doing everything we can to sort out the problem.
