Male Survivors South West was set up here in the South West of England, for male survivors of sexual abuse to provide a support network , which will enable men to start to open in a way that they have never been able to do so before.

After past experiences and lack of real support when needed, it was decided that a support was needed, so that every man can learn that they are not alone and that they can share their emotions and feelings with confidence, in  a safe environment.

We feel that running a group assists men to see that despite their experiences being different, that the lasting effects are the same, and we hope that by hearing other men speaking out, it will allow them to take back control, and by doing so, they will in turn allow others to do the same.
