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.

National LGBT+ Domestic Abuse Helpline

Donate & Fundraise

"I felt despondent, not taken seriously by the police, defeated and frustrated. Finally being taken seriously by my Galop caseworker felt like being thrown a lifeline"

Galop has been providing support for LGBT+ people experiencing issues with safety and policing for over 30 years. Your donations help us to continue providing casework support, running the National LGBT+ Domestic Abuse Helpline and working to make life safe, just and fair for LGBT+ people. You can make one off or regular donation by clicking the button below:

Every penny raised for us really does make a difference to how many people we can help and how much support we can offer.

Just £10 means that we can answer another call on the helpline.

£30 pays for 1 hour of casework support.

£50 allows us to support someone who has experienced domestic or sexual abuse to meet with a police officer and make a report.

£150 allows us to use community outreach to educate at least 100 people about their rights.

If you are a UK Taxpayer using Gift Aid means that for every pound you give, Galop will receive an extra 28 pence from the Inland Revenue, helping your donation go that much further.
