Diversity Policy

At Galop, we believe that life should be safe, just and fair for all LGBT+ people, and that includes our staff in the workplace and those who come to us for help. 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.

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 and clients. We are committed to listening and learning and to constant improvement. We believe it is our job to make sure that all our staff and service users, particularly those from minoritised backgrounds, feel welcome, safe, and able to thrive at Galop.

We support and encourage our various Staff Networks to provide peer support and a route to feed into organisational decisions for staff members with minoritised identities. We are members of the Halo Code and engage with initiatives across our network of anti-abuse and LGBT+ organisations to ensure that we move forwards together to affect change. We strive towards a culture where all our staff can be open and authentically themselves in the workplace.

We want our staff and the people who use our services to feel respected and supported, and that their identity and individuality is valued. We oppose all forms of prejudice, discrimination, harassment and exclusion.

We value getting people the results that they want. We listen to people to understand their needs and interests. We believe that people of all identities and viewpoints have the right to be safe and be treated with respect by organisations they go to for help and advice.
