Interviews with Eaves’ service users

Please note: due to staffing constraints we are not able to grant interview requests to students or to researchers.

Eaves supports women who have experienced violence, including domestic violence, sexual violence, prostitution, trafficking and homelessness.

Our support comes at the point of crisis, which means that women who use our services are very often deeply traumatised by their experiences. Consequently, very few of them are willing to speak with journalists about their experiences.

Some women will speak, and so Eaves can sometimes help you with requests for interviews. Please be advised that interviews are strictly controlled and take time to set up, and that we will need to know the following information before we are able to assist you:

  • Where the piece has been commissioned
  • What the piece is about, including your angle
  • What you need from us
  • Your deadline
  • If any other organisations are involved in the piece

If you require an interview please read the interview protocol information below and then contact the press office at [email protected] or on 020 7735 2062.

If you cannot secure a face-to-face interview, we have a number of written case studies that you can use instead, and sometimes we can find you a new case study that matches a specific story angle.
