Covid-19 and Male Victims of Domestic Abuse

Please find below Policy Briefings on the effects of Covid-19 on male victims of domestic abuse, and, their children (if they have them). There will also be links to key pieces of media coverage and commentary relating to male victims.

These short weekly briefings will set out a range of issues that we are finding through our direct support to male victims alongside those of organisations and practitioners that we speak to. This forms part of the wider role the charity has in giving male victims a voice and supporting those in the sector that support, or want to support, them.
