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


Men and boys can, and do, recover from the impact of sexual abuse and violence. At First Step, we see the progress people make when they have the time and space to make sense of what has happened to them.

If you live in Leicester, Leicestershire or Rutland and would like to try accessing our counselling services, please email us at uk or call 0116 2548535. You don’t. need to go through this alone.

The following videos share some of the different experiences and journeys of men who have survived abuse or rape. Hearing about other people’s stories can be validating. It can also trigger difficult feelings and memories. Be kind to yourself and only watch these if you feel it would be helpful.

Beyond First Step
