The primary purpose of PartnerSPEAK is to provide an online forum for people affected by their partners/spouses/family members’ involvement in child abuse material, and may find themselves stigmatised and isolated by their family, friends and local community.
This safe, facilitated forum allows you to share your experiences and seek support from other affected partners whose spouse/family member accesses/accessed child abuse material. You can share your frustrations, questions and fears, and seek support and advice from other affected partners who are having or have had similar experiences.
Be Part of a Supportive Community
PartnerSPEAK aims to provide a safe space for you to share your experiences and stories and ask other members for advice and support. Please help us to create a supportive environment for this community. Each individual may respond or react to similar situations very differently. Please recognise that others may feel differently and act differently to how you have responded upon learning about your partner’s involvement in child abuse material.
Our Commitment to Anonymity
To ensure that you can remain anonymous if you choose, the majority of this online forum is accessible to the public and allows you to post comments without having to register as a member. If you prefer to post comments that are only visible to other registered members, you can register to join a members-only area.
All Posts are Moderated
To ensure the content on the PartnerSPEAK forum is supportive of its users, all posts will be moderated before they are published on the forum and may not be visible for up to 24 hours.
The PartnerSPEAK forum is managed by individuals with personal experiences of being a partner of someone involved in child abuse material. Please note that we are not counsellors and that this website is not monitored 24 hours. If you are in crisis or need immediate support, please contact one of the organisations listed in the section Professional Help & Advice.
