Fundraising Helps "Conversion" Helpline

26/03/2022

Anti-abuse charity GALOP, who recently were awarded a winning accolade at the Diversity Awards, have launched a helpline for people affected by anti-gay and anti-trans “conversion therapies”, which are often associated with oppressive if not violent religious groups. Statistics suggest that two per cent of LGBTQIA people have undergone the pseudo-treatment, which mental health professionals note can lead to low self esteem, self loathing and in extreme cases, thoughts of self harm. Leni Morris, the CEO of the GALOP Charity, says ““The conversion therapy ban proposed by government is a step forward for our community, but we know that the spotlight it gives to these practices may cause pain and trauma to those who are experiencing these abuses right now, or have been through them in the past”. Galop’s National Conversion Therapy Helpline will be available Monday-Friday 10:00am – 4:00pm by phone (0800 130 3335), and via email CThelp@galop.org.uk. For those wanting to support the helpline, there is a Crowdfunder open for donations to help support the costs of the service, as it is being set up with no dedicated funding.
