Men's Advice Line: a confidential helpline for any man experiencing domestic violence and abuse from a partner (or ex-partner).
We are a team of skilled professionals offering practical advice, information and emotional support to male victims of domestic violence, as well as to concerned friends and family and frontline workers.
The service is run and managed by Respect.
Our focus is to increase the safety of men experiencing domestic violence (and the safety of their children) and help them reduce the risk.
We know how difficult it is for men experiencing domestic violence to know who to approach for help, advice and support. You may feel that no-one will believe you and that no-one will take your fears seriously.
Our trained staff are here to listen and look at ways of helping
you, which include:
- Providing you with emotional support
- Giving you time to talk through your experiences
- Providing you with relevant information and practical advice
- Signposting you to other specialist organisations suchas: domestic violence units, mental healthorganisations, emotional support services, services for gay, bisexual and trans (GBT) men and organisations providing immigration, housing and legal advice,parenting advice and support, and assistance withchild contact issues.
- We are not legally qualified so we cannot offer legal advice; also, we are not housing specialists but we can find legal advice centres and housing advice centres for you.
