What are the advantages of Assisted Reporting with Galop?

At Galop you can talk to a trained caseworker who is an LGBT person.

There are other agencies who offer this service and, of course, you can report directly to the police.  However Galop is dedicated solely to helping lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) people and we therefore have a much stronger understanding of the issues which face LGBT people, especially in relation to the law, policing and homophobia or transphobia.

Galop can talk you through the incident and ask you the right questions to make sure the most important details are reported so that the best use can be made of any information you  provide.
