Supporting men who have experienced physical, psychological, emotional and sexual abuse.
To provide an on going support service to adult male survivors of physical, emotional, psychological, sexual abuse and rape; their partners, families and anyone else supporting them. We are working to raise public awareness of male victims of abuse and the issues they face while promoting our organisation and the services we provide. We run weekly support groups, individual counselling, a helpline, confidential on-line message forum and email support.
Why the community needs us
Although attitudes are changing, there is still a lack of awareness and understanding around men experiencing abuse. The effects not only impact the victims of these crimes but ripple out into society. Specialised support services for men are severely lacking throughout the UK, yet there is a clear need. A specialised and accessible support service will help these men to recover from the trauma of abuse. This will assist them in improving their lives and contributing positively to society.
Our impact on the community
Our aim is to help improve the lives of men who have suffered the trauma of abuse. The effects on victims and families can be devastating. Specialised counselling and support can help men to face, then overcome their problems and improve their lives. Positive changes are unique to everyone but include: Cessation of alcohol and drug abuse, reduced anti-social behaviour, improved relationships, gaining employment, improved self care and an overall improvement in emotional wellbeing.
