We no longer receive any Government funding, so can YOU help US?
Like every one else, we need your support to maintain our services and ensure that we are still around to meet the needs of everyone who calls us, emails us and joins our support groups. Please give what you can afford to spare and let us help spare someone's grief and sadness, allowing them to start their healing journey and getting their life back on track.
We came close to shutting down last week, but with good fortune and good guys who paid the months rent for March, we can carry on a little longer.

We would be more than happy to keep all (non anonymous) donators informed of how the organisation is doing yearly.
MST (Male Survivors Trust) provides a unique experience with our specialised services that we offer non offending Adult Male Survivors, but we need YOUR support to raise awareness, and to improve our overall organisation.
We do not get any any funding to carry out our work, we rely entirely upon donations, Standing Orders and fundraising ideas.
Our running costs are endless, and the demand on our services often exceeds that, and although the information is provided free of charge to the millions of male survivors out there, without your support we will struggle to maintain our website, struggle to continue to hold our weekly group meetings, and struggle to promote MST, making it more available to those who have yet to find the courage to speak out and find the support they need and deserve.
We have struggled long enough, to survive and NEED your SUPPORT now.
HISTORY OF MST
MST has been operating a weekly telehone helpline since 1991, which is open daily between 10am and 4pm and Wednesday evenings between 7pm and 9pm. Sadly for all the callers out there, we had to close the helpline in 2012. A male survivor support group met every week, since 1991. On average, we had seven guys in that group. A second male survivor group started in June 2006. On average, we have nine guys in that group. A female partners group was started in August 2006, and a third male survivor group was due to start soon. Over 4,000 men have experienced the unique healing process we have provided since 1991. We saw clients every day, for one to one sessions, and new clients get in touch every week.
I have more than 25 years direct experience of supporting and enabling male survivors to overcome their past histories of sexual abuse/rape, having been sexually abused myself, as a child and young teenager, and from speaking to my first client in 1986.My work with MST has also led to the following:
Facilatating both weekly support groups, giving group members a deeper inside knowldge and awareness of male survivor issues. Providing training to Police, Social Services, NHS staff and survivor agenices every year, around the UK, than any other survivor agency. Organising the Annual March and Rally against Child Sexual Abuse that takes place in London every year. Playing a significant role in publicising and raising awareness, by appearing in Radio, TV and other media outlets, to speak out and break the silence Arranging male survivor retreat workshops, and other support workshops. I have also spoken at internationally on male survivor issues.If you would like to see what we provide, please check out our main page, via the link below
Offering a unique experience to NON OFFENDING Adult Male Survivors of child sexual abuse or adult rape, this website contains a wealth of information on male survivor issues. Sexual abuse, incest and rape is often associated with physical, mental and emotional abuse, which many boys and men have also endured and survived.We are a regionally based, nationally recognised, and internationally renowned agency, providing specialised training to agencies around the UK, which first started in June 1991, making us the longest existing male survivor agency in the UK.
Our support is offered to all male survivors, wherever you are in the world.
Contact us if you would like to join us. Please check back again to see more updates and how to join us in our battle against child sexual abuse and rape, and society's insistence that it doesn't happen to boys and men, because it does.
MST is also building a collective of groups and websites that support and empower adult male survivors of sexual abuse and rape, wherever you may be in the world or cyberspace. Membership is open to all male survivor sites and agencies that want to affilate themselves to the growing amount of men breaking the silence that is not theirs to keep.
