Who are we?
The Revenge Porn Helpline was established in 2015 alongside the introduction of new legislation in which disclosing private sexual images and videos without someone’s consent became against the law. The Helpline is run by a small team of passionate and motivated individuals who are here and ready to help.
By April 2020, we had helped over 5,800 people who have contacted the Helpline seeking support and advice for cases of intimate image abuse and had removed over 89% of the content we have reported on behalf of our clients.
We are currently funded by the Home Office.
Meet the team, yes there's only four of us
The helpline is operated by 4 female practitioners, we know picking up the phone to a stranger is a really difficult step so to help, here's a bit more info about the humans on the other end of the phone...
I have worked on the Helpline for nearly four years and have a background of working with people affected by domestic abuse and in the criminal justice system. I’m keen to raise awareness of the issue of intimate image abuse and ensuring that we do everything we can to support people affected by this crime. When I’m not working I like reading, films, baking and running.
I have a background working with children and vulnerable adults. I’m interested in learning about how we can work with other organisations to support people holistically. I joined the team because I wanted to continue to support people who have been harmed. Outside of work, I like to run, mediate to recalibrate my mind and play video games.
I graduated with a degree in Human Geography and have a passion for social justice and equality. I find working on the helpline very rewarding and interesting as it's an everchanging and past paced field to be involved in. I enjoy managing the Helpline's social media channels and website to keep us current and up to date. When I’m not on the helpline answering calls and emails, you can find me in the home section of a supermarket buying candles and home furnishings.
I graduated with a degree in Criminology and Psychology. I have an interest in helping people who are experiencing or have been victims of trauma. I have a background in researching issues around sexual violence. I joined the team because I am interested in helping and supporting people who may be experiencing distress. When I’m not working, you can find me in the gym, baking, reading, or playing video games.
