Online Launch – Galop – Commissioning for inclusion: Delivering services for LGBT+ survivors of domestic abuse

The online launch of our new report: “Commissioning for inclusion: Delivering services for LGBT+ survivors of domestic abuse” is fast approaching.

Please join Galop at the online launch event on November 19th, 2020 10:30am – 12:15pm, register here.

“We hope that the guidance can be used to facilitate an dialogue at a local, regional and national level on how commissioners, service providers, policymakers and the government can work individually and collectively to better meet the needs of LGBT+ survivors within commissioning and procurement activity, as well as service provision.”
