Free, confidential and independent support for anyone who has survived any kind of sexual violence, at any point in their lives.

For male identified students and staff, LSE partners with SurvivorsUK who can offer online appointments with an Independent Sexual Violence Advisor. SurvivorsUK deals with sexually abused men as well as their friends and family, no matter when the abuse happened, and challenge the silence and attitudes. To arrange an appointment with the ISVA, please contact edi.svsupport@lse.ac.uk.

SurvivorsUK can offer a range of support services including counselling and therapy appointments as well as online chat. All services are provided by trained professionals who as specialists in the field of male sexual violence have helped many men to work through their experiences.
