Daniel Wolstencroft

I am a project worker and group facilitator for Survivors Manchester. I began my career following a troubled and difficult early start in life and adolescence when I was given the opportunity by my family to train and work as a young person’s drug worker at Bolton Lads and Girls Club.  This was followed by a period as a drug worker in Manchester for ADS (Addiction Dependency Solutions).

I experienced the support offered by Survivors Manchester in 2009 when it first opened, which helped me deal with the abuse I suffered as a child, and later as a victim of child sexual exploitation. This was the start of a personal, difficult, lifelong but rewarding journey to rebuild my life.

As a result of the support from Survivors Manchester I made an active choice to pursue work in the sector to support other male survivors to break their silence and get back the life that they deserve. I regularly undertake further training opportunities (I will soon enter the University of Central Lancashire to train as a psychological wellbeing practitioner) to help in my roles at Survivors Manchester where I deliver one to one emotional support and also support the delivery of The Safe Room (a peer support group with a therapeutic, facilitated base for survivors aged 18 and over to participate in).  I also support Survivors Manchester’s effort to deliver quality training and I am a regular workshop facilitator for Greater Manchester Police and other partner agencies. I am proud to accompany male survivors on their healing path and bear witness to brave men re­gaining control over their lives and moving towards a positive future.
