Our confidential helpline is available for male victims of domestic abuse and domestic violence across the UK as well as their friends, family, neighbours, work colleagues and employers.
We provide an information, support and signposting service to men suffering from domestic abuse from their current or former wife, partner (including same-sex partner) or husband. This can range from physical violence or object throwing to abuse such as constant bullying or insults.
We have also produced a directory of local services (called the Oak Book) which support male victims, so please visit this section to find the service in your community.
The helpline is a listening service which provides emotional support, practical information and signposting.
We receive calls from male victims of domestic abuse across all age ranges and professions:
• From dustmen and doctors, to, bankers and builders
• From men in their 20s to men in their 80s
• From men in England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales.
The helpline also welcomes calls from friends, family members, neighbours, colleagues and employers of male victims seeking information.
We also receive calls from support organisations, charities and statutory agencies such as local authorities and police forces.
