We are Australia’s leading organisation for male survivors of child sexual abuse and their supporters.

Welcome to samsn

All male survivors of child sexual assault should know that the abuse was not their fault and that healing and recovery is possible. Regardless of his ethnicity, sexual orientation, age or religion, any man, including all expressions of male gender identity, can contact SAMSN for support. All our services for survivors and supporters are FREE.

SAMSN is a not-for-profit charity that employs qualified staff and men with lived experience to provide services to male survivors, their families, and supporters. We offer Planned Support and CounsellingEight-week Support Groups and Monthly Drop-in Meetings for men, Supporters & Survivors Workshops as well as workshops and training for service providers.

SAMSN has been developed through collaboration between survivors and professionals and operates within a trauma-informed framework.

We are currently able to offer our services to male survivors who are residents of NSW, were abused in NSW (but may reside interstate or overseas) and to those eligible for the National Redress Scheme who currently reside in NSW. If this does not apply to you, please still feel welcome to contact us and talk to one of our team about services in your area.

NOTICE – CONTINUING SERVICE PROVISION

As the situation regarding COVID-19 evolves, the health and well-being of our people and clients are our top priority. SAMSN continues to follow the advice of NSW Health and the Commonwealth Government to help minimise the spread of the virus. As a result, the SAMSN office is now closed.

Our dedicated team remain committed and continue to support survivors and supporters by working remotely. We encourage you to stay in touch and contact SAMSN for support.
