Non-Consensual Sharing of Intimate Images

Published: 10 June 2020

Current restrictions on movement due to coronavirus have led to a surge in the number of people contacting the Revenge Porn Helpline, the UK government service for adults experiencing intimate abuse. This is attributed to the increased use of the internet and social media, as well as heightened emotions during lockdown.  If you, or someone you know, has been affected by this, do not delay in seeking help. Know that you are not alone. Help is available.
