Welcome to ASSAP

ASSAP is a charity and learned society founded in 1981 to investigate, research and educate on a wide range of anomalous phenomena, from hauntings to UFOs, mediumship to monsters…

As part of our work we carry out paranormal investigations and train members to become accredited investigators. If you have a case, such as a haunting, that you want investigated, click here. There are also hints and tips on investigating reports of paranormal phenomena.

We also do systematic research, such as looking into possible causes of reports of anomalous phenomena. Some of our previous studies have included paranormal photos (such as ghost photos, orbs and flying rods), EVP, magnetism and ghosts, haunting sounds and the reliability of witness testimony. An important area of our research effort is looking into how to recognise and eliminate normal causes of paranormal reports. We have found that common causes of paranormal reports include misperception, near sleep experiences and peripheral vision artefacts. We encourage members, and others, to do their own research by giving grants and advice.
