Although Women are a much higher percentage of abuse victims, men can be victims too. Although we are a women’s centre, we also acknowledge that men can need help and support.
Unfortunately, we don’t currently have the availability to support men directly other than counselling, we have added some helpline details below for men to get support.
If you are a victim or domestic abuse of know of someone who us, and there is an emergency that is ongoing or life is in danger, call 999 now. If you are deaf or hard of hearing, use the textphone service 18000 or text the police on 999 if you have pre-registered with the emergencySMS service.
For non-emergency cases and for general advice, please call 101. If you are deaf or hard of hearing, use the textphone service on 18001 101.
