For lots of boys and men, the telephone can be the first step they take in their healing. Picking up that phone, dialling the number and asking for help can be the most daunting and frightening thing ever, we know this because for some of us here, we remember doing that and for all of us we answer the phone every day.
As a front line service supporting survivors of sexual violence, we support and encourage those in need to access to Rape Crisis England and Wales’ 24 / 7 Rape and Sexual Abuse Helpline. The service is also available online via a live chat feature and both forms of support run 24 hours a day, every day of the year.
