What do we offer? 
Our Sexual Violence Support Service is personal, friendly and actively inclusive of all lesbian, gay, bisexual, queer, trans, intersex, asexual, non-binary and genderqueer identified people aged 13+.
Talking about sexual assault can be tough, without worrying that your identity, relationship or what happened to you might be questioned or misunderstood. At Galop we recognise sexual, gender and relationship diversity and provide a welcoming and safe space to talk for all LGBT+ people.
Galop’s service is empowerment-based, trauma informed and person centered, meaning we work with each person as a whole human being. We aim to increase choice and control, and support people to build resilience, healing and hope in their lives. We offer a safe, confidential and informed space in which people can talk about what’s happened, think through their options, and get emotional and practical support in an informed and non-judgmental way.
You can read more about our values here.
We also offer expert advice and advocacy to those who are thinking about reporting to the police, or have already done so. We know how the criminal justice system works and will support you throughout the process, if that’s what you want.
If you have experienced sexual assault, violence or abuse – or have questions about consent and relationships - Galop is here for you.
Please do get in touch, in confidence, to see how we might be able to help.

Who should use this service?
