Galop - full logo transparancy JPG

Galop is the UK’s only specialist LGBT+ anti-violence charity. Our mission is to make life safe, just and fair for LGBT+ people. This year we will mark 39 years of providing advice, support, advocacy, and campaigning to end anti-LGBT+ violence, abuse and discrimination.

Galop works around three key areas; hate crime, domestic abuse and sexual violence. We also have specific projects to support trans victims of crime and young LGBT+ people at risk.

​​​Galop is an independent organisation and its services are confidential and free. We have substantial expertise in developing high-quality services and support that understands and meets the needs of LGBT+ victim/survivors. We work in partnership with others so that understanding and provision around sexual violence, domestic abuse, and hate crime is inclusive of LGBT+ people’s voices and experiences.
