If you are a boy or man who has been raped or sexually assaulted we can help you. All the staff at the Saint Mary’s Centre are highly trained and skilled. They have extensive knowledge and experience in supporting men and boys who have been raped or sexually assaulted.

We understand how difficult it can be to talk about your experience and seek help and support. We can reassure you that you will be treated with dignity and respect throughout. We will help you recover from the physical and emotional effects of the assault.

We offer support to clients with various backgrounds and needs including disabilities, offending history etc please speak to our team if you would like to know more.


“After an awful experience, I cant think of a better person to speak with” 

“ Thank you for all your support. It’s been really good for me to have someone to talk to after all these years”


You will be able to access our full range of services. These include:

A 24 hour advice and information line 061 276 6515

You can access our services either via Police or you can contact us directly. You can also be referred to our services through another agency as long they have your consent.

If you report your assault to the Police, you should automatically be offered the Centre’s services as part of their response to sexual violence.

You can use our services without making a report to the Police or we can support you if and when you do what to speak to the Police.

We work closely with other support services including We Are Survivors who can help with counselling support. We also have a male counsellor.


If you have used our support or are being supported, we would like to hear from you. You can do this in a few different ways:

  • Provide service feedback – you can ask your ISVA or the main office for one of our feed back forms.
  • Anonymous feedback for male clients – Click here    
  • Male Survivors Consultation Group – if you would be interested in joining a consultation group, either face to face or online, please contact us and ask to speak to the ISVA Team Lead
  • 1:1 Consultation for Male Survivors – groups aren’t for everyone, but your voice is just as important. Please contact the ISVA Team Lead and ask to be booked for a 1:1 consultation, again this can be face to face, online or phone.
