Recruiting – Domestic & Sexual Violence Caseworkers x 6

Galop is the leading LGBT+ anti-violence charity, providing advice, support and advocacy to LGBT+ people who have experienced hate crime, domestic abuse and sexual violence.

Galop works directly with thousands of LGBT+ people who have experienced abuse and violence. We specialise in supporting victims and survivors of domestic abuse, sexual violence, hate crime, and other forms of abuse including honour-based abuse, forced marriage, and so-called conversion therapies. We are a service run by LGBT+ people, for LGBT+ people, and the needs of our community are at the centre of what we do.

We run two national support helplines: one for LGBT+ victims and survivors of domestic abuse, and the other for LGBT+ people who have experienced hate crime. We provide advocacy services, both in London and nationally, for LGBT+ victims who need longer-term support. We are person-centred, empowerment-based, and trauma-informed – meaning our focus is always on helping our clients decide what is best for them, and then supporting them through their journey.

We use what we learn through working on the frontlines with clients to work on national and local policy change, to improve outcomes for LGBT+ victims and survivors of abuse and violence. We build evidence through key pieces of research, like our upcoming report into LGBT+ experiences of sexual violence. We push for legislative change, improved statutory guidance for victims, and better understanding of the needs of LGBT+ people around the country.

Galop is delighted to receive new funding to expand provision within our Sexual Violence, Domestic Abuse and Young People’s Services.

  • Independent Sexual Violence Advocate (LGBT+ Children and Younger Adults)
