CONTEXT

An estimated 12,000 men are raped every year and 76,000 sexually abused or assaulted. Yet just 4% of men will tell someone. Of those who do, it takes on average 26 years to do so.

SurvivorsUK provides specialist support to men and boys, trans and non-binary people who have been raped, sexually assaulted or abused. Our aim is to help any man, boy or gender non-confirming person to have the confidence to tell someone what’s happened to them and to know that it’s OK to seek help. When they do, we want to ensure they have access to the right support so they can deal with the impact of their experiences of criminal harm.

We provide emotional support, information and signposting to survivors and anyone worried about someone they know, through a national website and webchat service (open till 9pm most evenings). Last year, 2,600 people contacted us via our webchat services and social media.

In London, we are the only organisation providing specialist services for men and boys, including individual counselling and therapeutic groupwork, available till 9pm six days a week. Across London, we provide the capital’s only Independent Sexual Advisor (ISVA) Service that helps men and boys through the criminal justice system.

 

ABOUT THE ROLE

Groupwork+ is an exciting and challenging project at SurvivorsUK. It builds on the success of our Groupwork pilot to meet the needs of more men, across a wider area of London, reaching more diverse communities. Groupwork+ helps men with complex and high support needs, including men for whom generic services don’t work.

You will need to be a highly skilled groupwork facilitator with experience of dealing with extremely vulnerable clients, willing to work flexibly and on your own initiative. Importantly, you will be a compassionate person able to blend therapeutic work with practical support and care.
