Galop National LGBT Domestic Abuse Helpline

Our National Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Trans* (LGBT) Domestic Abuse Helpline provides confidential support to all members of the LGBT communities, their family, friends, and agencies supporting them.

Domestic abuse is any kind of threatening behaviour, violence, or abuse between people who have been intimate partners or family members. This includes forced marriage, abuse relating to gender identity or sexuality and so-called honour based violence. Domestic abuse can occur between current or former intimate partners, in the home, or in the family.

Domestic abuse can take many forms, including psychological, physical, sexual, financial and emotional abuse. Find out how to tell if you’re experiencing it and what to do if you are.

Does your partner, ex-partner, or a family member:

  • Call you names, threaten to ‘out’ you, or use put-downs?
  • Use your gender or sexuality as a basis for threats or harm?
  • Damage your property?
  • Threaten to harm you or others that you love?
  • Control your access to money?
  • Make unwanted advances or force you into unwanted sexual contact?
  • Hit, shove, grab, kick, throw things, or use other forms of physical violence on you?
  • Control your contact with friends, family, work, or the LGBT ‘scene’?
  • Threaten to harm themselves if you leave or seek help?

If so, you may be experiencing domestic abuse. Get in touch for support and to explore your options.
