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.

Women’s Aid’s services are provided for women and children survivors. This is because the gendered nature of domestic violence means that women and men have different safety and support needs. We believe that most of the information resources for survivors on this site are relevant to anyone experiencing abuse, and will help you reach a point where you are ready to contact a service for male survivors.

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