Students and research
We are always happy to hear university projects are being focused and completed on the topics around Intimate Image Abuse. If there is anything we can do to help, please get in touch and we'll do our best to try and answer your questions. We can't guarantee we will always be able to help as sometimes our helpline practitioners don't have the capacity.
Important note - We are unable to ask victims to complete any questionnaires or surveys and we can't promote these across our social media channels.
You may be able to find more information across our website or resources and you are welcome to quote it in your essay or project, please take account of your responsibility to cite sources and give references.
So what's the best way to get in touch and what do I need to say?
You can get in touch with the helpline during our opening hours via email. If you can tell us some details about your research and how you'd like us to help, we'll see how we can help you as best we can.
Things to let us know:
- Who you are and where you study
- What your area of study is
- What your research is about
- What questions you like to ask us
