Donations to support the helpline

To support our work in supporting the hundreds of thousands of male victims of domestic abuse and domestic violence in the UK, the ManKind Initiative relies on donations from:

  • Individuals as donations, sponsored activities and bequests
  • Companies (as part of their charitable giving/corporate social responsibility) – many raise funds on charity days or Charity(ies) of the Year campaigns
  • Company sponsorship for our helpline, directory and other activities
  • Trusts and foundations
  • Bequests

Any money raised and any donations or bequests that are received are used with due care and are ringfenced to support the helpline (we receive no government or state funding for the helpline).

Recent donations have been used to:

  • Fund the continuation of the helpline
  • Produce new leaflets and posters advertising the helpline
