Volunteer

Galop gives advice and support to people who’ve experienced biphobia, homophobia, transphobia, sexual violence or domestic abuse. Although we are now able to offer our services to more people than ever before, our funding is only enough to provide a small permanent staff team, and we always need more support in specific areas.

At the moment we are particularly looking for enthusiastic and flexible volunteers who we can call on to help us in the following areas and will make a real difference to the work we do!

  • Helping with one-off events – e.g. fundraisers or events like Pride
  • Helping to deliver publicity – e.g. dropping off cards and leaflets to LGBT venues across London or mail-outs to let people know about us
  • Helping to Fundraise – e.g. if you have expertise in fundraising, want to put on an event for Galop or raise money through sponsorship!
  • General office admin – Tuesdays only at the moment!

Please download an application form and tell us a little bit about what you would like to get out of working with Galop. We will then contact you to have an informal chat about the next steps.

Unfortunately, as we’re a small organisation we don’t have the capacity to train volunteers to work directly with clients. If you are interested in advice work with clients you might want to look into one of the larger charities, such as Switchboard, THT or Stonewall.

Join the Management Committee

Galop is run by a Management Committee made up of volunteers. They have a direct input into shaping the future and direction of Galop’s work in challenging homophobic and transphobic hate crime. We are particularly interested in applicants from the Trans and BME communities as they are currently underrepresented on the Committee.

If you are interested in finding out more about joining the Management Committee please download our Management Committee Application Form or look at the Member Role Description to find out more about what’s involved.
