Since 2000 we’ve been supporting people who self identify as male who are affected by unwanted sexual experiences.

We use the term ‘unwanted sexual experience’ to include any non-consensual or unwanted act of sexualised violence, coercion, manipulation or abuse. For example online or text abuse, childhood sexual abuse, sexual assault, rape. Everyone’s experience is unique and you will have your own language for what has happened to you.

1 in 6 men have been affected by unwanted sexual experiences

That’s over 5 million people in the UK
