Thanks to funding from Lloyds Bank Foundation for England and Wales, the Male Survivors Partnership in conjunction with LimeCulture CIC, are pleased to announce that 5 new services are participating in the Independent Accreditation Programme for the Quality Standards for Services Supporting Male Victims/Survivors of Sexual Violence in 2019 free of charge.

We welcome two Higher Education establishments’ Sexual Violence Liaison Officer (SVLO) services to the Accreditation Programme for the first time, recognising the value and significance of the Quality Standards being applied across all sectors.

The 5 services who submitted successful applications to receive the funding for a place on the programme are:

1. Circles South East Counselling Service for Survivors
2. RASASC North Wales Counselling
3. Renaissance ISVA service
4. London South Bank University SVLO service
5. The University of Sheffield SVLO service

Background information

Since their launch in January 2018, the Quality Standards for Services Supporting Male Victims/Survivors of Sexual Violence have been downloaded hundreds of times, and we already have over forty services that are working towards accreditation.  This means many services are already working to improve consistency, practice and the overall quality of services supporting male victims/survivors.

The Quality Standards and the Implementation Guidance for Commissioners and Service Providers are available online, free of charge: http://www.malesurvivor.co.uk/implementation-guidance-online.pdf
