Rape crisis scotland also have a freephone helpline which is country wise.

0808 8010302

I have rang them a few times, and they have been really helpful.

They can offer practical advice if you are still in, or fleeing an abusive situation, can tell you what to expec going through the legal process and of course, they can just offer emotional support if you are ringing in distress.

Male rape/CSA one-on-one anonymous counselling via computer

Survivors UK has started one of these, modelled on the well-known RAINN online chatline in the U.S. The British equivalent is available only four days a week, and for a maximum session-time of half an hour, but it's a start.
