Support for male survivors

Domestic abuse is not acceptable and should not be tolerated whether the victim is male or female. Every person has the right to live a life free from abuse.

Whilst both men and women may experience incidents of inter-personal violence and abuse, women are considerably more likely to experience repeated and severe forms of abuse, including sexual violence.  They are also more likely to have experienced sustained physical, psychological or emotional abuse, or violence which results in injury or death.

Most of the information resources for survivors on this site are relevant to anyone experiencing abuse but support services for victims, by necessity and for safety reasons, are best provided separately for women and for men.

The links listed below give information about organisations for men to contact if you or a man you know is experiencing domestic abuse.
