What Galop Does
Galop gives advice and support to people who have experienced biphobia, homophobia, transphobia, sexual violence or domestic abuse. We also support lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans and queer people who have had problems with the police or have questions about the criminal justice system.
Galop is completely independent – we are a community-led group and we are not connected to police. You can talk to us anonymously if you choose.
How Can Galop Help?
If you need advice, or just want to get something off your chest, you can talk to us. Galop is a space to talk and get options, even when you feel there aren’t any. We’ll never pressure you into taking any action you aren’t comfortable with and we won’t share information about you unless you want us to.
You may have already tried to get help from the police or others. You may not be sure what’s happening or you’re dissatisfied with the response. We can fight your corner, help get what you need or record what happened.
Galop can advocate for you – meaning we’ll act on your behalf and try our hardest to get you the outcome you want. Advocacy involves speaking up for you with other organisations such as the police or local council.
