Survivors UK provide a national helpline and both individual counselling and group therapy from our base in Shadwell, London, E1. The counselling and groups are for adult men (18 and over) who have experienced sexual abuse at any time in their lives and they also offer workshops for carers/partners/supporters of male survivors. They provide training to professionals and organisations working with adult male survivors.
The Home Office Crime Reports estimate that there are more than 2 million adult male survivors of sexual abuse in the UK. There are fewer than 20 services nationally that offer support to these men and SurvivorsUK is one of very few that do so exclusively. They currently assess more than 150 people per year for counselling services and receive more than 2500 calls to our helpline.
SurvivorsUK is the only male centric service (offering therapeutic services primarily to men as the focus of the organisation) in London. There are two other organisations that we know of offering support to men as a section of their service. All other independent sexual violence services in London are women only.
