Information for research participants
Our longitudinal (or cohort) study with adults has now closed to new participants. However, there are other parts of our project where people are welcome to get involved. If you are over 18 years old and been affected by sexual abuse or violence, you might consider contributing through our other avenues such as our Lived Experience Group . If you would like to discuss other ways of being involved, please reach us here or email firstname.lastname@example.org
Our children and young people’s study is still open to referrals from providers who support children who have been to SARC. Please see here for more information.
This 3-minute video will give you an insight into who we are and why we are undertaking this research.

When I took part in the research I found it very helpful to me. I was able to express my feelings and talk openly about emotions that I couldn’t talk to family or friends about. It made me reflect on my positive future. (Baseline interview, Dec 2019)
I was very interested in helping you with your Health and Wellbeing study because I have been affected in many ways by the way I was treated by my ex-partner….who is going to be charged. I spent some time in Women’s Refuge after I walked out from abusive relationship. I ended up with no money…no work, no roof over my head and had to try to rebuild my life again. I would love to help so no woman or man has to go through what I and many others affected by abuse had to go through.

I felt at ease throughout the interview even though it wasn’t easy to answer all the questions. I found this interviewer excellent and I was informed of my choices and told the procedure re confidentiality. I look forward to the next interview as it was a nice feeling to take part in the Study. Also a great incentive with regards to be able to receive the £10 Amazon voucher for taking part. Overall 9/10!
