LimeCulture is working in partnership with Male Survivors Partnership to develop quality standards for services for male survivors of sexual abuse, rape and sexual exploitation.
Funded by a grant from the Lloyds Bank Foundation for England & Wales a two-year project, beginning May 2017 will see the development of new quality standards developed and rolled out nationally across the UK.
For males who have experienced sexual violence these new standards and the accreditation process that goes with them, will give a layer of reassurance about the quality of the services they are accessing at a time when they are feeling most vulnerable.
In order to support the development of the standards during July 2017 we conducted an online survey to understand the experience and views of adult male survivors of sexual violence or abuse.
We would like to thank all survivors who responded to the survey for their honesty and insight.
The standards in their draft form will be published here for feedback in Autumn 2017.
