Thank you for considering taking part in the below survey. The research is intended to help better understand men’s experiences and to improve community responses to men who have experienced childhood sexual abuse or sexual assault. Your contribution is very important to us.

This survey has two clear purposes, first to help improve our understanding of men’s experiences of childhood sexual abuse or sexual assault and second to find out how boys and men may be better supported in the future.

Involvement in the research is voluntary. We estimate that participation in the survey will take approximately 10-15 minutes of your time. In working through the questions, please take care to prioritise your own safety and well being at all times. Although the questions are general in nature, we recognise that providing any information about an experience of sexual abuse or sexual assault can be unsettling. Whilst the information you provide is important to us, your well being is of greater importance.

For your information, no identifiable information will be requested or required in order to complete the survey. Your Internet Protocol (IP) address will also not be collected. Once the information you provide has been submitted, we will be unable to identify, withdraw or remove that information. We will ensure that any potentially identifiable information you provide to us in the survey remains confidential. No identifiable information will be available to researchers conducting data analysis. You are welcome to discuss participation in this study with the Manger of Living Well, Dr Gary Foster, on (07) 3028 4648.

Please read our privacy policy.

    I hope that one day, men like me can be truly understood in the pain we kept inside and though we may not show it, we are equally as vulnerable as anyone else.
