MOSAIC is a registered charity and support agency for male survivors of sexual and child abuse in the Greater Wellington region.
We are the only male sexual abuse agency in the Greater Wellington region with a Ministry of Social Development (MSD) Social Services Accreditation to work with vulnerable child, adolescent and adult survivors of male sexual abuse.
Our purpose is to empower male survivors of sexual abuse in their recovery process, and to work towards changing the way the community views sexual abuse of Kiwi males, the effects, the victims and the perpetrators.
