SurvivorsUK works with men and young men aged thirteen and over who have been sexually abused, assaulted or raped and raises awareness of their needs. We:

Support those who identify as male and who have been abused or violated

Challenge the silence surrounding male sexual abuse

Build communities of support for survivors of male sexual abuse

We are a dynamic, forward thinking organisation which is committed to continuing to provide counselling, emotional support, ISVAs (Independent Sexual Violence Advisors) and groupwork services. We especially want to extend these and other innovative therapeutic services to clients who traditionally are regarded as 'hard to reach', such as male survivors aged 13-18, sex workers, trans clients and clients from BAME communities.

If you are an ISVA (or an experienced support worker willing to undertake ISVA training) who is committed to work with clients who have experienced sexual trauma and who is excited to operate as a key part of a small dynamic and creative-thinking team, then we would delighted to hear from you. Whilst this is a service or those who identify as male, we welcome applicants from all gender identities.
