Who can you talk to if you’re a victim of blackmail?

Blackmail can take place in different settings, including online, your home, your place of work, your school or via the phone or the internet.

The person carrying out the blackmail might be a stranger, an acquaintance, neighbour or groups of people living nearby, an ex-partner, family members or someone at work or school.

If you’re LGBT+, seeking help with harassment, blackmail or other threats might mean ‘outing’ yourself to people you may not be ready to to tell yet.

If this is the case, speak to Galop – we offer free, confidential advice and support, including outlining your rights in your particular situation, suggesting an appropriate course of action, as well as putting you in touch with other agencies or support networks that may be able to help.
