Sexual Assault Casework & Support Service

T: 0207 704 2040

Galop provides confidential and independent advice and support for lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans people who have experienced sexual assault, abuse or violence, however or whenever it happened.

How we can help?

  • listen and support you to talk about what happened
  • practical advice and support
  • get counselling support
  • if you choose to report to the police, we can help you to get an appropriate and effective police response, and support you through every step of the criminal justice system
  • our service is based on the values of inclusion and empowerment- we take an individualised approach, in the way that best suits you. 

Speaking up about sexual assault can be tough, without feeling your sexual orientation or gender identity will be questioned or misunderstood. At Galop we celebrate sexual and gender diversity. We provide a welcoming, inclusive and safe space to talk, whatever your sexual orientation or gender identity.

Sexual assault happens in the chemsex scene too, but it can feel risky and difficult to speak up. If you think you might have experienced sexual assault or you’re not sure, Galop is here for you, however and wherever it happened.

We also offer workshops to LGBT groups on consent and sexual rights. For inquiries please contact our office number 0207 7046767 or email
