Survivors Manchester offer a variety of support services to male survivors like telephone support, face-to-face support, support groups, online guides, and even information for friends and family of survivors who are looking to support where and when they can. Their survivors booklet which is available online, has a collection of first hand stories from survivors which are filled with empowering lessons told by some of the bravest people on the planet. The charity themselves had a direct input into the story of John Paul which saw the actor James Sutton visit Survivors Manchester himself to get a sound understanding of the role he was to play.
When I visited the charity, Tom who is the clinical lead at Survivors Manchester gave me a brief overview of the charity and the office they work in. While the work and support they offer is incredibly widespread, they still remain quite a small charity who use a range of methods to publicise their services, including creative platforms like blogs and social media. I created a care package to be shared or donated to a survivor which included personal grooming products, organisational material and a DVD. Tom advises to include items that will directly improve the clients well-being and items the improve life management skills like notebooks and calenders.
While male orientated, the website does also offer information for female survivors too. Help support Survivors Manchester by donating, shopping Amazon through the associates program, browsing the web through Everyclick or simply sharing this post to raise awareness.
