The MOJ website tells us this morning that it would like to give male sexual abuse survivors the chance to have their say on the kind of support they would like to receive. 

The government has recently committed £500,000 to the first fund of its kind to help male victims of rape and sexual abuse. The MOJ want you to tell them how you’d like them to spend it.

The news story also tells us that the MOJ are interested in hearing from friends and family of survivors, charities and support groups too, the more views the better.

We are also told that this effort is in conjunction with a social media campaign the government started in February this year called #breakthesilence. The campaign is, as you might imagine, designed to raise awareness of the fund and to encourage survivors to speak out. We think this is a brilliant campaign and we hope you’ll join in and show your support.

If you want to share your views, you can do so here. The dialogue closes on 13th July…..
