At SurvivorsUK, we want to help men who have experienced sexual abuse – no matter where they are.

That’s why we’ve assembled this list of self-help links. If you’re having a difficult time, perhaps you’re dealing with flashbacks, depression or any of the other common feelings and effects survivors experience, then hopefully one of these links will be able to offer you some help.

Consent & Chemsex information for gay and bi men in London – GALOP + LONDON FRIEND + SURVIVORSUK

Recently we observed in the media number of court cases involving death and sexual assault of gay/bi men by other gay men, all involving the use of hook up apps and chemsex.

This prompted Galop, London Friend and SurvivorsUK to join forces to create a “Consent & Chemsex Guide” for gay & bi men in London. These London-based organisations work with gay/bi men, and men who have sex with men, who experience sexual assault and other challenges relating to consent and chemsex. Their aim is to support them through advice on consent and what are their options if they have been sexually assaulted.
