If so, we would like to hear from you.

We are seeking to interview diverse people who have experienced image-based abuse as an adult. By ‘image-based abuse’, we mean the taking, sharing or threatening to share intimate images without the consent of the person depicted in the image. An ‘intimate image’ can be a photo, or video, including deepfakes.

Who we would like to speak to

To investigate the effectiveness of digital tools and interventions to detect, prevent and respond to image-based abuse, we are looking to speak to diverse people who:

  • Are over the age of 18;
  • Were over the age of 18 when their experience of image-based abuse took place; and
  • Are available to participate in a 60-minute interview (online, face-to-face, or by phone).
