Enabling the Wellbeing of Male Survivors of Sexual Violence

You can’t go back and change the beginning, but you can start from where you are and change the ending

Male Survivors Otago is a member organisation of  Male Survivors Aotearoa- the national advocacy and policy organisation for male survivors in New Zealand. See national website here.

We are committed to helping men who have suffered sexual, physical or emotional abuse to discover and sustain their own recovery pathway.  We work alongside men, sharing our knowledge and experiences, and moving towards a better future together.

Regardless of where you are in your journey towards healing, we provide compassionate and practical support without judgement.

We offer an intentional peer support on a one-to-one basis, or as a member of a peer support group – the opportunity to work with someone who has also experienced trauma, someone who has ‘walked where you are now walking’.


Always on purpose: Putting male survivors first and always seeking ways to improve their well-being.


Always ethical, open and honest: Acting authentically with integrity and without judgment, always aspiring to the highest standards of professional practice.


Always collegial: Building meaningful relationships based on mutual value, trust and respect, and working together to achieve our ambition for the future.
