COVID-19 UPDATE...

Meetings now held online...

Tuesday 04 May 2021

… and roughly every Tuesday fortnightly thereafter

All our meetings are from 7:00pm - 8:30pm

Chats are via hack.chat. You can arrive and leave at any time throughout the meeting.

hack.chat is a text-only messaging platform. It has some customizable coloring, but all options are light text on dark background. The font size is not adjustable.

Our focus has been on information security, which as a field is extremely inaccessible: to anyone with access needs, anyone with extra safety needs, and anyone who isn’t a cis white tech bro. Good information security does not excuse poor accessibility. We’re looking for alternatives with better accessibility, but haven’t yet found another platform which meets the safety needs of members.

Contact us for the secret link, which changes every meeting. Once you contact us for one link, we’ll automatically send you links to upcoming chats unless you ask us not to.

Normal service details...

Not Your Fault is a peer-led support group for all men (trans, cis, & otherwise) and all non-binary people (or any/no gender) who have experienced sexual violence.

This is a peer-led space for survivors to mutually support each other. While it is facilitated by one or two people, it is non-hierarchical and led by everyone present.

This space is for anyone who feels that they will benefit from it. We welcome anyone who has been turned away from other services or doesn’t feel comfortable navigating them e.g. because they are too gendered. We also welcome women who don’t have access to other support services, especially trans women, sex workers, migrants, and women who can’t attend physical support services.

We hold fortnightly meetings in Edinburgh and fortnightly meetings online. Check our upcoming meeting dates.

Meetings are at The Autonomous Centre of Edinburgh, 17 West Montgomery Place, Edinburgh, EH7 5HA, UK.

Meeting times are 6:00pm - 7:30pm.

There is never any expectation that you discuss or disclose anything. You can share as much or as little as you like, and everything discussed at the meetings will be considered confidential.

You can arrive and leave at any time throughout the meeting. There is no need to RSVP; just come when you’re ready.

We have exclusive use of the space. The venue is on the ground floor with step-free access. There is a toilet with wheelchair/impaired mobility accessibility.

We have a travel fund! If you need your travel costs covered for any reason (including taxis for anyone unable to safely use public transit), please get in touch and we will cover as much as we can.
