I thought it would be helpful to have a page for male survivors to find help and information.
If you know of any other resources, please let me know by using the form on the “Contact us” page.

Don’t Panic, We’re Here and Not Going Anywhere
These are strange times, there’s no disputing that, but we will get through this. Our work has focused on supporting individuals to #BreakTheSilence and this is no different.
If you have any queries or worries, you can talk to any of the team, but as the Operations Director, Chris is always available to sort out anything that needs sorting.
Remember, WE ARE MALE SURVIVORS and WE DESERVE TO BE OK!
We’re all in this together at Survivors Manchester and we’ll all come out of it stronger together
Stay safe, follow the rules and be kind to yourself and each other. (A message from the CEO, Duncan)
A new site with self-help resources and information for the 1 in 6 men who have had unwanted sexual experiences.
You don’t just have to live with it. There are things you can do. There are people who can help.
moMENtum is a mutual support group for male survivors of childhood sexual abuse. We meet as equals for support and to gain an understanding of ourselves and to share information and resources.
Knowing how difficult it is, is why we are here.
As survivors ourselves, we know how difficult it can be to disclose sexual abuse and find the support you need. You will always be in control of what you say, we don’t pry, everything is at your pace and about healing from the effects of trauma and abuse. We understand it may have been a long journey to get to this point today, viewing our website and if finding support and understanding in our society and services has not been easy, many of us have found that too and that’s why we are here. In the absence of support, we began to support ourselves now in our 8th year. We have all been abused but we meet because we want to heal, find joy and ease in our lives, to be ourselves and know what that is for us.
Thank you John, for contacting me via the Contact Us page to let me know about this important support group based in Devon.
