Support for male survivors
We understand that if you are a male victim of domestic violence, it can feel incredibly difficult to open up and tell someone about what you are experiencing. We also understand that it might seem as though all services are for women only, and that can be intimidating or perhaps unwelcoming.
One in six men will face domestic abuse throughout their life. It’s not as uncommon as you may think, and we are there for you. We provide support to all people who are experiencing domestic violence.
We have a predominantly female workforce, but we are trained to take calls from male survivors too, and you will never be judged or interrogated. We are here to help.
If you do not feel comfortable speaking to us and would prefer to contact a men’s only advice line you can speak to:
Men Standing Up – 0300 303 0167, available weekdays 9am to 4:30pm
Respect – 0808 8010327, available weekdays 9am to 8pm
ManKind Initiative – 01823 334244, available weekdays 10am to 4pm
We are also here for you if you have experienced sexual violence, but if you would prefer to speak to a male-specific charity, contact Survivors UK.
Call for help now
0808 2800 999
Open Monday - Friday, 9.30am - 4:30pm (closed for half an hour lunch at 1pm)
Our One Front Door helpline is completely free and confidential, and the call will not show up on itemised bills.
