SurvivorsUK Participatory Project
In March, with support from Awards for All England, we started running creative expression sessions for members of SurvivorsUK: men and non binary survivors of sexual abuse and assault. The group meet every two weeks and arts professionals will be invited to lead sessions. We will be working towards a public showing of the work the group creates in autumn /winter 2022. Stay tuned for further updates and get in touch with Project Coordinator Seb if you would like further information.
SurvivorsUK helps men and non binary people who’ve been raped, sexually abused or assaulted. Every year in the UK, around 12,000 men and non binary people are raped and 76,000 sexually abused or assaulted. It isn’t easy for men and non binary people to talk about what’s happened to them: only 4% will speak about it. Of the few who do, it takes an average of 26 years to do so.
SurvivorsUK counselling, helpline and support services are available to help men & non binary people deal with the devastating impact of rape and sexual abuse.
