No More Rape Myths

Rape myths and misinformation are prevalent in our society and are often spread by the media. This makes it more difficult for survivors to be believed and access support.

Join our No More Rape Myths campaign to directly challenge rape myths in the media and create positive change.

Support After TV

Our research ‘Out of the Shadows’ shows that support information provided after TV programmes can help survivors recognise abuse and get the support they need.

The provision of support information is patchy and does not occur online.

Sign our petition to get this changed.

We work very hard building campaigns with the Consent Coalition and host their website. The coalition’s work has received UK-wide acclaim. Have a look at their excellent resources.
