Because no-one should feel they have to keep quiet
about sexual abuse
On average it takes 26 years for a man to speak out about sexual abuse or rape. Our 2017 BBC Radio 4 Appeal focused on this worrying statistic and why it takes so long for a victim/survivor to talk about what happened to them.
We think that 26 years is 26 years too long.
Sexual abuse isn’t easy to talk about, but here at SurvivorsUK we work to shorten that time as much as possible. With your support, we can give men a space where they will be listened to and believed and we can provide long-term support to men who have suffered in silence for so long.
We are delighted that Louis Theroux, producer, filmmaker and broadcaster, presented a BBC Radio 4 appeal on behalf of SurvivorsUK telling listeners why he thinks it is important to raise awareness about male sexual abuse and give a voice to those affected.
We hope the BBC Radio 4 Appeal will raise valuable funds to help transform the lives of more men affected by sexual abuse. Please support us by donating generously and spreading the word to your family, friends and colleagues.
You may listen to the appeal again but now that the BBC’s donation week is over, donations for SurvivorsUK will no longer be accepted through the BBC Radio 4 website and those will instead go to the next charity featured. We are still accepting donations for our Appeal on our website, please return after listening to donate using one of the following options:
A regular gift of £10 a month helps keep our counselling service open to any man needing help
£12 could pay for a 45 minute helpline chat with a man needing help
£25 could help a person talk and share their experiences in a group setting
£45 could help someone who is on low income to access affordable counselling
