Speak Out Scotland
We are delighted to be partnering with Speak Out Scotland, a charity who support adult survivors of childhood sexual abuse. As part of our on-going work in this area, we linked in with Martin Henry, the author of the Independent Review into Sexual Abuse in Scottish Football, giving evidence during his research period and have been involved in various stakeholder working groups to implement the outcomes from his report. We felt it was important for PFA Scotland to have a trusted organisation to provide confidential assistance and advice for any of our members who may require support and to this end we engaged with Speak Out Scotland and are proud to work with them.
Who are Speak Out Scotland (SOS)
SOS are Scotland’s only male survivor organisation. With over a decade of experience, the organisation was established in direct response to the lack of services for male survivors in Scotland. SOS is run by survivors for survivors and like PFA Scotland, treat each survivor as an individual with unique needs. We do not judge, we do not discriminate and anonymity lies at the heart of everything we do.
SOS have established an unrivalled reputation for the quality and effectiveness of their services. Initially focussed on delivering complex trauma therapy, they have grown to include an array of services, which support the survivor and their families through all stages of recovery. Services are free and open ended, which means each survivor gets the support they need, for as long as they need it.
