… more than 150 people through our counselling services and 2,500 people remotely per year


  • Announcement

    SurvivorsUK is delighted to have appointed as our Chief Executive Keith Best, formerly Chief Executive of Freedom from Torture where he experienced many of the issues confronting the work of our charity such as the sensitivities and care needed in helping those affected by male sexual abuse. Keith comes from a background of having led two other charities (Prisoners Abroad and Immigration Advisory Service) both providing services to vulnerable groups. He is well placed to take us forward in raising public awareness and support for our cause while concentrating on ensuring that we provide appropriate services to those in need in a cost-effective manner and gain the resources to do so. “In the grim context of an increase in male sexual abuse our services offering support and comfort are more needed than ever before and we must take our response to a higher level” said Keith.

  • “Focusing specifically on what occurred in the past has allowed me to make sense on any impact in my present day to day life. Finally I have been able to welcome the tomorrow.”

  • “I feel better able to deal with the darkness and pain of my childhood through my time at SurvivorsUK. A big light has been shone on my past and I don’t feel ashamed or blame myself anymore. The pain is still there but I am better able to deal with it in a way that doesn’t cause me further pain now. Having the space at SurvivorsUK has given me a chance to transform the way I deal with the past in a positive way.”

About SurvivorsUK

If you want to talk about male rape or the sexual abuse of men, we’ve had over twenty years of listening and helping. We talk to thousands of people every year.

We provide web chat and SMS/text chat services, and run 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 rape or sexual abuse at any time in their lives and we also offer workshops for carers/partners/supporters of male survivors.

We provide training to professionals and organisations working with adult male survivors.
