Galop to run National Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Trans* (LGBT) Domestic Violence Helpline
The national Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Trans* (LGBT) Domestic Violence Helpline will now run by Galop, the leading LGBT anti-violence and abuse charity. Galop has been working for 33 years to support LGBT victims of abuse, violence and discrimination through a variety of services, including a helpline and as the lead partner of The Domestic Abuse Partnership which is the only specialist multi-agency community response to LGBT Domestic abuse.
Galop has worked quickly with Broken Rainbow and the Home Office, which funds the service, to ensure that there is no gap in service.
Nik Noone, Galop’s Chief Executive said “This is a vital service and it is important that those experiencing domestic violence in our communities have somewhere to turn when they need support. Galop has worked with all parties to make sure that support continues and there is no disruption to the delivery of this key service.”
Bob Green, Stonewall Housing’s, Chief Executive said “I am delighted that Broken Rainbow’s services will continue within Galop. As the lead organisation of the LGBT Domestic Abuse Partnership, Galop have ensured high quality services are delivered for LGBT people experiencing domestic abuse and that the emerging themes are considered by partners, providers, commissioners and decision-makers. I look forward to these services growing in the future under Galop’s direction”.
