MSP is a consortium of sexual abuse, rape and sexual exploitation support organisations that offer specialist support to boys and men across the UK, working together for the purpose of generating healing.

About The Male Survivors Partnership

In 2013, a small group of organisations throughout England and Wales came together to lobby the Ministry of Justice to recognise the need to create a funding equity in the sexual violence sector resulting in the first ever Male Rape Support Fund being created. This small group of organisations continued the conversation until 2016, when Survivors Manchester, Survivors UK, Safeline and Mankind created a ‘Gentleman’s Agreement’ that committed them to working together to ensure that a National conversation on the needs of male survivors continued to be had; whilst at the same time effort made into increasing the knowledge, awareness and support services for boys and men affected by sexual abuse, rape and sexual exploitation.

The partnership continues to grow to become a central point of reference for male survivors and those seeking support for the boys and men in their personal and professional lives.

All members of the Male Survivors Partnership are registered with the Charity Commission or CIC Regulator to ensure good governance, and sign up to a Gentleman’s Agreement and whilst working to advance the support for men and boys across the country, agree that this is not to ignore/negate or surpress the amazing work done by many to advance the support for women and girls. The agreement can be found here: Click Here for Agreement

Survivors Manchester is a survivor-led / survivor-run voluntary organisation that aims to create and facilitate a safe space for male survivors of sexual abuse and rape to work through personal and sometimes painful issues. Our work is concentrated on empowering men to make their own positive life choices and begin their own unique journey of healing. Being in contact with other survivors allows one to feel less isolated; feel connected and break the silence and legacy of abuse.
