Male Survivors Canterbury

The MSC provides peer support to men that experienced sexual trauma and also run a weekly support group. We hear from a lot of different men and encourage you to get in touch if you think it’s time to talk.

Support for Male Survivors


What we can provide? 


 One on One Peer Support.

Sit down and have a chat with one of our peer support workers and work at your pace

Peer Support Groups.

Meet weekly with other men who have been through what you have been through. We meet you first before you come to the group. There are two groups active currently after standard work hours.

Advocacy for Male Survivors.

We can talk to you about the ACC process around sexual abuse, telling you what other men found useful.

Work with you if you wish to engage with other agencies. Sometimes you just need a person to back you up.

We advocate for whatever you need.
