Care and support needs of men who survived childhood sexual abuse

Report of a Scottish qualitative research project with adult male survivors of childhood sexual abuse. The aim is to improve male survivors’ wellbeing, through establishing their perspectives on their major care, support and intervention need throughout the lifecourse; and by making and disseminating a report with recommendations, to improve services and preventive action across all sectors.

Consultation on the proposal to develop an acknowledgement and accountability approach for adult survivors of childhood sexual abuse

Consultation developed with the National Reference Group, set up to implement the recommendations of Survivor Scotland.

This paper was designed to draw on the views and experiences of survivors particularly and it was acknowledged from the start that more innovative methods were needed to ensure that this happened. A number of events were held with survivors and survivor organisations to raise their awareness of the consultation and engage them in discussions.

Group and individual interviews were also carried out with survivors, facilitated by survivor organisations.
