EastEnders have worked with SurvivorsUK, a national charity which supports men, boys, and non-binary survivors of sexual violence, on a new storyline in which Mick Carter, played by Danny Dyer, realises that he was sexually abused as a child, by a woman.
If you are affected by this story, we can support you. Find out more here.
I can’t remember how old I was when the sexual abuse started,but it had always been part of my life and felt quite normal. I guess I can start my story at around 5 years old.
Lyla Smith-Abass is an Independent Sexual Violence Advisor at SurvivorsUK. She wrote this moving poem about George Floyd, who was killed by a police officer in Minnesota last week.
