How can we help?

People are affected by intrusive, inaccurate, or otherwise abusive press reporting and conduct every day.

Hacked Off offer specialist, confidential and pro bono advice to those affected by misconduct committed by or on behalf of newspaper publishers based in the UK (irrespective of whether any coverage appears online or in print).

If you have been affected by press misconduct, please do fill in the form below.  Your details and message will be handled in confidence, and we will aim to get back to you soon.



















We always endeavour to respond to complainants as quickly as possible and we will handle your case with both sensitivity and confidentiality.

If you are experiencing feelings of distress and isolation, or are struggling to cope, The Samaritans offers support; you can speak to someone for free over the phone, in confidence, on 116 123 (UK and ROI), email jo@samaritans.org, or visit the Samaritans website to find details of your nearest branch.
