SurvivorsUK runs the National Male Survivors Online Helpline – a webchat and SMS service for men, boys and non-binary people who have experienced sexual abuse at any time in their lives.
Our specialist support team can chat with you for up to 45 minutes per day by webchat or by text (SMS). Click ‘Chat online now’, below, or send a text to 020 3322 1860.

Our specialist support workers are experienced at supporting you to share things at your own pace, when you are ready.
The chat is under your control so you can choose to finish whenever it feels right. There’s no pressure – you can contact us as little or often as you like, for up to 45 minutes per day.
Independent Sexual Violence Advisors (ISVAs) are trained to provide emotional and practical support to survivors of rape, sexual abuse and sexual assault who have reported to the police or are considering reporting to the police.
Our main role is to support around the criminal justice process, but we are independent from the police and we are not legal advisors.
Meeting other men who have gone through similar experiences to you can be profoundly helpful. A group of survivors is a safe, confidential space where you can tell your story, share experiences, learn from other people’s coping strategies and really feel like you are not alone.
We offer individual counselling to boys, men, and non-binary people aged 13 and over who have experienced sexual abuse at any time in their lives.
Our counselling service is available to those resident in any London Borough.
Please note that we are currently unable to offer EMDR services to new clients due to staff shortages.
We know that you may have questions about taking civil action in relation to abuse. To make it easier to get advice and speak to a lawyer, we set up the Civil Law Clinic with the law firm Bolt Burdon Kemp.
Bolt Burdon Kemp can help with bringing legal action for abuse against individual abusers, foster parents, employers, sports or youth clubs, religious or charitable organisations, social services and others. They can support people seeking compensation though the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority (CICA) and through the court system.
This database includes qualified counsellors, psychotherapists, arts therapists and psychologists who have undergone a specific training with SurvivorsUK, as well as other organisations offering support.
