History of a Nationwide Support Network
In 2014 a major report on support services for male survivors of sexual abuse, commissioned by ACC, resulted in the Government approval of a package of $740,000 in sustainability funding for male survivors of sexual abuse organizations. The following year a national hui agreed to establish the national organisation that would become Male Survivors Aotearoa.
From 2015 to 2018 MSA focussed on the establishment of its national governance frameworks, formation of national policies and protocols; the establishment of a national qualifications framework for its peer-workers; the development of a national case management system; and, in collaboration with the Ministry of Social Development, a new funding model to enable the development of a national services network.
In the Government’s Budget 2019, the allocation of $12m in funding over four years exclusively for the provision of peer support services for male survivors represented the culmination of a six year strategy to obtain sustainable funding for MSA, its member organisations and nationwide support for male survivors.
All male survivors of sexual abuse have access to a sustainable national network of appropriate high quality support services.
