Survivors Manchester provides a variety of online, offline, 1:1 and group support direct to male survivors, along with their friends and their families.
We also provide training to police officers, counsellors/psychotherapists, and other allies health professionals; and professional support and consultancy to public authorities, health care professionals and third sector organisations.
Every single member of our small but dedicated staff team have all been affected in one way or another by the sexual abuse, rape or sexual exploitation of boys and men and are 100% committed to helping those that access our support to become empowered to break their silence, so they can move beyond those unwanted experiences and make choices for themselves based on today.
All of our team are committed to working in a non-oppressive manner and do not support any form of discrimination, whether on the grounds of age, race, religion, sexual orientation, HIV status, parental status, socio-economic class, or criminal history.

All members of the team fit into an overall governance structure, which we have detailed below to help you understand how it all works:
