Job description

Do you want to make life better for LGBT+ victims and survivors of abuse?

Galop is the LGBT+ anti-violence charity, providing advice, support and advocacy to LGBT+ people who have experienced domestic abuse, sexual violence, hate crime, and other forms of interpersonal abuse. We were founded in 1982, and have been championing the needs and safety of the LGBT+ community for nearly 40 years. Galop works directly with thousands of LGBT+ people who have experienced abuse and violence. We specialise in domestic abuse, sexual violence, hate crime, and other forms of abuse including honour-based abuse, forced marriage, and so-called conversion therapies. We are a service run by LGBT+ people, for LGBT+ people, and the needs of our community is at the centre of what we do.

We run two national support helplines: one for LGBT+ victims and survivors of domestic abuse, and the other for LGBT+ people who have experienced hate crime. We provide advocacy services, both in London and nationally, for LGBT+ victims who need longer-term support. We are person-centred, empowerment-based, and trauma-informed – meaning our focus is always on helping our clients decide what is best for them, and then supporting them through their journey.

We use what we learn through working on the frontlines with clients to work for national and local policy change to improve outcomes for LGBT+ victims and survivors of abuse and violence. We build evidence through key pieces of research, like our upcoming report into LGBT+ experiences of sexual violence. We push for legislative change, improved statutory guidance for victims, and better understanding of the needs of LGBT+ people around the country.

About you

Galop is seeking an Independent Domestic Abuse Advocate (IDVA) to join our LGBT+ Domestic Abuse Team. This role is specifically to provide advocacy and support to trans and non-binary victims/survivors of domestic violence and abuse.

As an Independent Domestic Abuse Advocate you will provide high quality advocacy and support to trans and non-binary adults experiencing domestic violence and abuse, including those who are at high risk of violence and abuse, focusing on their safety and protection. Your work will enable trans+ people to feel supported, heard and empowered in the face of abuse and violence, and pave the way to a safer future for survivors.

You will work directly with trans and non-binary people facing domestic abuse, offering clients a space to talk and think through options, helping them plan what they want to do, and offering assistance in getting what they need from services. Your work will focus on needs specifically related to domestic abuse, such as wellbeing, support with the criminal and civil justice process, housing, financial impacts, and other barriers or practical issues. You will need to be empathetic and thoughtful in your approach to understanding your clients’ needs, while remaining boundaried and mindful of self-care.

You be line-managed by the Head of Domestic Abuse Services and sit alongside our other Domestic Abuse Advocates. You will work with statutory and voluntary services to ensure the voices and experiences of trans+ survivors are represented. You will also work closely with key trans+ partner organisations to ensure a joined-up approach among services working with trans and non-binary survivors.


Galop’s offices are located in London. This role will be based in the office following the end of the current pandemic. The team is working remotely while the pandemic continues.
