Advice, support, training and resources

''I just wanted to talk to someone who would understand''

The Men's Advice Line is a confidential helpline and email service for men who experience domestic violence from their partners or ex-partners. We support men in heterosexual or same-sex relationships.

We help by: giving men time to tell their story; offering emotional support; providing practical advice and signposting to other services for specialist help.

We also provide information and support to family members and friends of male victims.

We are not legally qualified or housing specialists so we don't offer legal or housing advice. However, we can signpost male victims to other organisations offering legal and housing advice.

How we help frontline workers

The Men's Advice Line is available to frontline workers engaging with male victims of domestic violence. Your call is free and confidential.
