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

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.
