Launch of New Report: “Commissioning for inclusion: Delivering services for LGBT+ survivors of domestic abuse”.

Galop is pleased to invite you to a launch of Galop’s new report: “Commissioning for inclusion: Delivering services for LGBT+ survivors of domestic abuse”. 

We hope that the guidance can be used to facilitate a dialogue at a local, regional and national level on how commissioners, service providers, policy makers and the government can work individually and collectively to better meet the needs of LGBT+ survivors within commissioning and procurement activity, as well as service provision. 

Please join us at the online launch event on November 19th, 2020 10:30am – 12:15pm, register here.

Please contact Dr. Jasna Magić, research and policy development @Galop, for any questions on this event.  (
