Many victims and survivor of sexual abuse remain silent for many years, but once they access support and begin their own journey to recovery, often wish to share their ideas, experiences and suggestions with others.

This page provides an opportunity to do that and includes the words of boys and men who share in the hope that it may be helpful to others.

Similarly, many people supporting boys and young men also from time to time write to us wishing to share their experiences. Their contributions will also feature on this page. If you would like to contribute something, please contact our office.
