Suffolk Rape Crisis recognises that the impacts of sexual violence are no less devastating for men and boys than for women and girls. We believe that all survivors of sexual violence deserve specialist support, which is why we work in partnership with Survivors in Transition to ensure that all survivors in Suffolk, regardless of gender, are supported. SiT offer an excellent service for men and boys who have been affected by sexual violence and their information can be found on the link below:

Their helpline workers can support you to share things at your own pace, when you are ready. The chat is under your control, so you can choose to end the conversation whenever you want. The service is open Monday-Friday between 10.30am-9pm, and Saturday-Sunday 10am-6pm. Their online helpline can be accessed here: https://www.survivorsuk.org/ways-we-can-help/online-helpline/
