Who We Are
Speak Out Scotland (S.O.S) has been set up as a direct response to the lack of services for male survivors of childhood sexual abuse.
The core management team are all survivors and have experienced a model of recovery which is innovative in its belief that the client is the expert. As survivors, we know that the journey to recovery needs specialist, ongoing support. We realise that many men have led dysfunctional lives and the journey to recovery sometimes involves starting afresh. We aim to build a service which can support and befriend men in different ways according to need.
What We Do
Speak Out Scotland provides a support service for male survivors of childhood sexual abuse. We do not provide a service for men who have a history of sexual offending.
We provide access to specialist counselling either face – face or in some situations by telephone. Additionally we run a self help group that runs fortnightly.We also operate a telephone helpline service for support, information and signposting to appropriate services.
Registration is to ensure the safety of service users and volunteers. All registration details and information will be locked away to ensure confidentiality. All conversations are strictly confidential unless there is a risk to self or others. To access these services please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or counselling@speakoutscotland telephone our helpline or fill in our registration form and we will set-up a quick assessment for you with Pat our counselling manager.
