While at BU, Sam’s final year project focused on eliminating the taboo surrounding seeking help for sexual violence victims of all genders.

This led to the development of the Red Flag Campaign, supported by SUBU, and Sam drew on this experience to become the first Outreach and Engagement Officer for male rape and sexual abuse charity, SurvivorsUK. The charity helps around 3,000 men, boys and non-binary people affected by sexual violence each year.

Since joining the organisation, Sam has delivered training to help raise awareness and increase understanding to organisations including Facebook, Arsenal FC, Spotify and NHS England.
