Disregarding Offences

We’re delighted that The Campaign For Homosexual Equality have supported Galop financially to help us produce our new resource assisting gay and bi men to delete cautions and convictions for consensual sexual offences.

On 1 October 2012, the Home Office introduced guidance which allows people in England and Wales with some historical convictions and cautions for consensual gay sex to apply to have those offences removed from their records.

Compiled jointly by Galop and Anna Mazzola and Chris Evans at Bindmans solicitors, our new resource explains the recent changes in the law and how to make an application.
