171: Revenge Porn Helpline annual report 2022

The Revenge Porn Helpline has been operated by SWGfL since 2015, providing immeasurable support to adults across the UK who have been affected by intimate image abuse. The Helpline (delivered by the UK Safer Internet Centre, who are funded by Nominet) provides information and support, advising on the different laws that may apply, reporting images directly to platforms, and signposting to further support services.

As in previous years, the Revenge Porn Helpline has released research and data exploring reported forms of intimate image abuse as well as guidance and support available.  The report also explores how the Helpline team offer successful practical support to adults over the age of 18, in the UK, who are experiencing intimate image abuse.
