Revenge Porn Helpline

If you have had your intimate images shared online without your consent there is help available.

The Revenge Porn Helpline is a UK service for adults (18+) who are experiencing intimate image abuse, also known as, revenge porn

The Helpline was established in 2015 alongside the legislation which made it an offence to share intimate images or videos of someone, either on or offline, without their consent with the intention of causing distress. The Helpline is run by a small team of passionate and motivated individuals who are here and ready to help. Because of the coronavirus, the helpline can be contacted via email, it is open Monday to Friday 10 am – 4 pm.

Intimate image abuse can also be referred to as ‘revenge porn‘, non-consensual pornography or image-based sexual abuse.

It is the act of sharing intimate images or videos of someone, either on or offline, without their consent with the intention of causing distress. 

In April 2015, the Criminal Justice and Courts Act made it, ‘an offence for a person to disclose a private sexual photograph or film if the disclosure is made without the consent of an individual who appears in the photograph or film, and with the intention of causing that individual distress’.
