Share a Story – Domestic Abuse and Violence
Have you been the victim of domestic abuse and violence and have come out of the other side?
If you would like to share your story and help others going through a similar situation, please read on…
Sellusyourstory.com is part of SWNS, the UK’s leading press agency. Every day we help people get their stories told in the press. On a daily basis we have on average 50 stories in the daily newspapers and magazines – our company is relied upon to provide content to the press.
Over the last 50 years we’ve helped hundreds of people tell their amazing survival stories. We continue to be inspired, amazed and shocked by your stories. We persist in trying to raise awareness about domestic abuse and violence, and we support Reveal Magazine’s Report Every Rape campaign.
Share my Domestic Violence Story
If you have been the victim of abuse and your abuser has been found guilty in court, please let us know if you’d like to share your story. We can talk you though the options and how it works, and help you get the best deal for your story (we cannot be beaten in terms of fees, so we guarantee to get you the most money for your story whether you want to make money for yourself or a charity).
By telling your story you will:
- Help others in a similar situation;
- Warn others about your abuser;
- Make money for yourself or a charity of your choice.
Every abuse story we print is followed up by hundreds of letters of support and from people who it has given the courage to bring their abuser to account for their actions.
Often we are asked if we can print a story anonymously, or if we can print a story when there hasn’t been a conviction.
In truth, we do print anonymous stories from time to time, and stories where the abuser has not been convicted, but it is very rare. It’s tricky for us from a legal point of view to name someone who hasn’t been convicted, and we always have to abide by the press rules that govern us. In addition, stories from a named and pictured ‘real’ person give other people strength to get help. We are happy to pass on the responses and letters that we receive detailing how your story has helped somebody else in the same situation, or given somebody courage.
If you’re unsure, or you’d still like us to consider your story, get in touch using the form on the right hand side of this page, or find more information on our sell my story anonymously page.
