Help for Men

Research and statistics show that the majority of domestic abuse is perpetrated by men against women, it is also acknowledged that men can experience abuse from their female partners and in same sex relationships. It can be difficult for men to acknowledge they are experiencing domestic abuse and the stigma and shame attached to the issue can be a huge barrier in accessing support.

Women’s Aid can provide Helpline support to men who experience domestic violence and can also sign post them to other agencies that can help. For many men, calling the helpline is the first step they have made in talking to someone else about the problems they face, whether it is information or emotional support.

Contact the 24 hour Domestic and Sexual Violence Helpline on 0808 802 1414.
