The Men’s Advice Line is aimed at men who are experiencing domestic abuse, but we also accept calls from concerned family members, friends or practitioners and frontline workers who need advice on how to best support a male victim of domestic abuse.

Is the call confidential?

Yes. The call is confidential. Any data taken is kept in line with our privacy policy that can be accessed here. In some circumstances we may be required under law to share or disclose your information to external parties where there is concern over someone’s safety.

Is there a screening process for callers?

No. All callers are offered the best help possible. No one has to prove that they are a victim to get a service.
