Online Abuse Survey
Women’s Aid knows that often domestic violence can be perpetrated online as well as offline.
We want to find out more about your experiences of online abuse, how it affected your life and if any services supported you. Your responses will be used to help us gain a wider understanding of online abuse and anonymised information may be used in briefings or reports.
This survey is for those who have experienced online abuse from a partner or ex-partner.
When we talk about online abuse we mean the use of the internet, digital or other electronic means to direct abusive, unwanted and offensive behaviour at an individual or group of individuals. It can include the behaviours below though this is not an exhaustive list:
– abuse over social media (Twitter, Facebook)
– abuse over email or on a website
– monitoring of social media
– monitoring of emails
– using the internet to spread lies about you
– use of geolocator technology to monitor your movements
– revenge pornography
– use of spyware (additional programmes/apps on your computer/phone to monitor your activity)
Thank you in advance for taking the time to complete our survey and helping us find out more about your experiences of online abuse.
