"Supporting men who have been sexually abused at any time in their lives, and their friends & family"

Who We Help, Why We Help & the Difference It Makes

An estimated 12,000 men are raped in the UK every year, and more than 70,000 are sexually abused or assaulted. 

At SurvivorsUK we know male sexual abuse has profound effects on those who experience it and can deeply affect their mental health and relationships. 

We are here to help sexually abused men as well as their friends and family, no matter when the abuse happened, and challenge the silence and attitudes.

We are here to support, challenge, build.

Independent Sexual Violence Advisors (ISVAs)

Our ISVA service can help throughout the entire legal process, from attending police interviews, to providing guidance and advice on your legal options following male rape and sexual abuse. Our ISVA service is open to men and boys over the age of 13, living in London and or if the abuse was committed in London. The abuse can have taken place either in childhood or adulthood. This is a free service. Please click here for more details including how to get help

Individual Counselling in London

We offer both individual counselling and group therapy from our base in Shadwell, London E1. The individual counselling is for adult men who have experienced sexual violation at any time in their lives.

We also offer individual telephone counselling with limited spaces. These services are open to all, but we will prioritise clients with disabilities which might prevent them from getting into the service and clients outside of London.

Groupwork in London

Our groupwork is for adult men (18 and over) who have experienced sexual violation at any time in their lives. 

Meeting other men who have gone through similar experiences to you can be profoundly helpful. A group of survivors is a safe, confidential space where you can tell your story, share experiences, learn from other people’s coping strategies and really feel like you are not alone.

We usually run closed groups of twelve sessions. Once you have filled in the online form, the groupwork co-ordinator will contact you to arrange an initial 1:1 meeting to discuss what sort of group would feel most helpful.

We are absolutely committed to seeking funding opportunities to continue our groupwork provision but, because of current funding uncertainty, we cannot guarantee that the groups will continue in their current format. Please do continue with the referral process, however, as we are hopeful groups will continue and we will keep you informed of our progress. If you want to discuss this further, please do contact us.

Clinic 26

Clinic26 is a safe place for men who have experienced sexual abuse, assault or rape, to access sexual health services in a supportive environment. We offer both sexual health testing and support around sexual wellbeing.

Clinic26 takes place at the Ambrose King Centre at the Royal London Hospital and is open on the first Thursday of the month from 1.15 to 5pm with limited pre-booked and walk-in appointments.
