Help and support for male victims of domestic violence

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

What makes a good service for men who have experienced domestic abuse? Tell us what you think! We have been funded by the London Mayor’s Office for Policing and Crime to develop quality standards for domestic abuse services for men. As part of this, we want to hear from men who’ve experienced abuse about what they think services should look like. Please take the time to complete the anonymous survey below – your help is much appreciate and it will make a big difference for services working with men like you.
