Share your experiences of reporting rape in the UK justice system

Rape is one of the most serious crimes that a victim can survive. Many rapes are never reported but even when a survivor comes forward the vast majority of reports will not make it to court or result in a conviction.

Less than 2% of reported rapes lead to a charge in England and Wales. Today it is harder to secure a conviction than it was five years ago.

The Guardian is committed to continuing to report on rape and the challenges survivors face in navigating the criminal justice system. Please get in touch if you would like to share your contact details in confidence with the reporters on this project.

How to get in touch
