This section tells you about the steps you should take if you are a victim of a homophobic or transphobic incident. It includes advice on making sure you are safe and well immediately after the incident and who to contact to get help and/or report to.
If you (or someone else) have been attacked or think that you are in immediate danger the first priority is to make sure you are safe.
If you (or someone else) have been serious assaulted you should call 999 and ask for an ambulance and the police.
Write down all the details of the incident as soon as you can including descriptions of the perpetrator(s), clothes they wore, any distinguishing marks, any nearby vehicles or witnesses, and anything they said such as homophobic/transphobic abuse or threats they made.
Call the police or Galop as soon after the incident as possible to make either a crime report, a non-police report or an anonymous report.
If police come to the scene of the incident, get the officers’ names and badge numbers so you a record of the officers’ who attended the incident.
