Leni Morris will soon step down as CEO of Galop, the UK’s LGBT+ anti-abuse charity

Leni joined Galop in 2020 and will step down at the end of January, after four successful years in the role.


During Leni’s time at the charity she has overseen huge organisational change, including the expansion of Galop’s services to deliver support nationally, opening the new National LGBT+ Abuse and Violence Helpline for all LGBT+ victims of hate crime, domestic abuse, conversion practices and rape and sexual abuse, and tripling the number of Galop’s frontline staff working to support LGBT+ victims of abuse and violence.


Leni will be leaving Galop to devote her time to caring responsibilities for a terminal family member. We’re incredibly grateful for the years of passion and commitment Leni has brought to Galop, and wish her and her family the best during this challenging time.


The process of recruiting for a new CEO will begin shortly and Galop’s Deputy CEO, Amy Roch, will continue acting as interim CEO. Amy joined Galop in 2021 and has over 15 years of experience working in the Violence Against Women and Girls (VAWG) and LGBT+ sectors throughout the UK. Throughout her time at Galop, Amy has made a significant contribution to the impact that Galop has had.


As a Board of Trustees, we’re very grateful to Leni for everything she has done for Galop. Under Leni’s leadership, Galop has grown significantly and delivers a critical service to our community. We’re now in a very strong position to continue our crucial work for LGBT+ abuse and violence survivors.
