About the survey

Crimestoppers and the University of Suffolk are investigating people’s experiences of sexual harassment in public spaces.

To take part in the survey, you must be aged 18 years or older and live in the UK.
Completing the survey should take between 10-15 minutes.

The purpose of this survey is to find out:

  • Whether you have experienced, or engaged in, sexual harassment in different public spaces
  • How you feel about these experiences
  • How these experiences have affected your use of different public spaces
  • Your thoughts about why some people choose to engage in sexual harassment in public spaces
Taking part in the survey is voluntary, and you are free to skip questions or exit the survey at any point. Any information you provide will not be linked to you as an individual. If you choose to take part, your answers will be anonymised and may be quoted as part of a report by Crimestoppers and the University of Suffolk, or future publications or presentations on this piece of research.

Due to the survey topic, some of the questions are personal and sensitive in nature, relating to experiences that may have been unwanted, upsetting or intimidating, or past behaviours which it may be difficult to think about. There is no pressure to answer these questions or to complete the survey. You can find a link to a range of support services at the end of the survey if you are feeling upset, or if you just want to talk with someone.
This study has been approved by the University of Suffolk Ethics Board. If you have any questions or concerns about the survey that you would like to discuss, you can get in touch with the Board at: researchoffice@uos.ac.uk. The Board will acknowledge your concern within 3 working days and give you an indication of how it will be dealt with.

If you remain unhappy or wish to make a formal complaint, please contact the Chair of the Research Ethics Committee at the University of Suffolk who will seek to resolve the matter as soon as possible: researchoffice@uos.ac.uk
