First Step Leicester, Leicestershire & Rutland
Supporting male survivors of sexual abuse and rape (aged 13+), and their loved ones

At First Step we were deeply saddened to hear of the death of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. As a mark of respect, and to enable staff and volunteers to pay their respects to our late Queen, we have taken the decision to close our offices on Monday 19 September – the national Bank Holiday. We will open, as usual, on Tuesday 20 September. 
We recognise that these times can be challenging for survivors, for a range of different reasons. If you are struggling, you may find the following options useful:
0808 800 3302: NHS Central Access Point – for urgent mental health help in Leicester, Leicestershire & Rutland. It’s open 7 days a week, 24 hours a day.
116 123: Samaritans – a confidential helpline available 24/7
