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.

http://www.survivorsuk.org/speak-to-us/

ETA: This is also listed under "Links" at the top of the page next to "Chat room" - resources for male survivors.
