How to report image-based abuse

If an intimate image of you has been shared, or someone is threatening to share it without your consent, you can make a report no matter what your age.

We can help to get the intimate images or video removed and, in some cases, take action against the person who shared, or threatened to share, it.

Read our advice and tips on dealing with image-based abuse, including how you can take action and get support.
