National Helpline for LGBT+ Victims and Survivors of Abuse and Violence - Galop


We support LGBT+ people who have experienced abuse and violence.

Our team has decades of experience in supporting LGBT+ people who are victims of domestic abuse, sexual violence, hate crime, so-called conversion therapies, honour-based abuse, forced marriage, and other forms of abuse.

Our helplines are open to anyone LGBT+ in the UK, as well as friends, family members, and professionals who may be concerned about an LGBT+ person who is facing abuse.

You can refer yourself into our services, or you can refer someone to us if you are a professional working with someone who might need our help.
