Case study: Galop
Under threat from London Councils' cuts!
In the last two years with London Councils funding Galop worked with 472 clients in London. In the same date period, Galop worked with 555 victims of crime where either the victim lived in London or the incident took place in London. 1 in 5 (or 19%) of Galop’s clients (of the total clients who live in London or experienced an incident in London) live in a different borough from where the incident took place.
Total income annually from London Councils is £75k for hate crime services (priority 67) and £64k for domestic abuse (priorities 61 & 63). Of that, we give out money to other partners each year: Broken Rainbow: £14,186, Pace: £13,428, Stonewall Housing: £3,802, London Lesbian and Gay Switchboard: £2,853.
Since getting LC money we have been able to leverage further funding: £39k from Ministry of Justice for hate crime work, £46k from Home Office for Hate Crime work, more than £100k from Comic Relief for additional domestic abuse work.
The Galop example illustrates how cost effective it is to commission such services, not only do boroughs get a huge service for a relatively small amount of money but funding benefits a range of other services whilst attracting money from other sources.
