Job description

About the role

This role builds on work that we have been doing for decades to support and empower LGBT+ people who have experienced abuse or violence. Your work will enable LGBT+ people to feel supported, heard and empowered in the face of abuse and violence, and pave the way to a safer future for our community.

You will work directly with LGBT+ children and young people who have faced abuse or violence, offering them 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 experiences of abuse or violence, including issues such as wellbeing, support with the criminal and civil justice process, safety and access to other services to enable survivors to cope and recover. You will be empathetic and thoughtful in your approach to understanding your clients’ needs, while remaining boundaried and mindful of self-care.

You will sit alongside our other advocates supporting LGBT+ people facing abuse or violence. You will work with mainstream services to ensure the voices and experiences of LGBT+ survivors are represented in order to make change for our community at a local and national level. You will also work closely with key partner organisations by attending meetings and have the opportunity to take part in external work to ensure a joined-up approach among services working with LGBT+ people facing abuse and violence. 

This is a pivotal moment in Galop’s journey. We have grown quickly over the last six years and you will be part of the future of our work. You’ll help us reach, support and assist more of our community nationally. You’ll be helping to amplify the voices of LGBT+ survivors of abuse, and ensure that they are at the centre of Galop’s service.

About you

You will have expertise in delivering needs-led specialist support services. You will need to be solutions-focussed and enjoy working collaboratively across a diverse and committed team. You’ll need to have good resilience and self-care, and be prepared to work in an environment where abuse and violence are regularly talked about. You’ll need to understand the impact of trauma and how that affects our team. 

There is an essential requirement under the Sexual Orientation Regulations 2003 that the post holder has experience of LGBT+ needs and the impact of discrimination. Candidates should demonstrate a thorough understanding of LGBT+ people’s lives, including awareness of the issues that LGBT+ survivors might face.

At Galop, we believe that life should be safe, just and fair for all LGBT+ people, and that includes our staff in the workplace. We believe in equity and understand the importance of inclusion for staff with a wide range of lived experience. No matter your age, race, faith, orientation, gender identity, disability, or class, we want you to feel welcome here. To that end Galop has a multi-year Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion plan in place, currently focusing on equity and inclusion for Trans and BAMER members of staff. We are committed to listening and learning, and to constant improvement. We believe it is our job to make sure that all our staff, particularly those from minoritised backgrounds, feel welcome, safe, and able to thrive at Galop. 

Location

Galop’s offices are located in London, but fully remote working is available for this role from anywhere nationally, with occasional travel to London required. 

Hours

Full Time (35 hours per week)

Until 31/03/2026
