16 Days of Activism: Day 4

1 in 6 men will experience domestic abuse. Today's video captures the story of one such male as he retells his experiences.

This voice is not alone.

Support for men experiencing domestic abuse

  • The Mankind Initiative provides an information, support and signposting service to men suffering from domestic abuse from their current or former wife, partner (including same-sex partner) or husband.
  • Twenty Voices is based on the work of Dr Elizabeth (Liz) Bates from the University of Cumbria, a trustee of the ManKind Initiative. All the voices included are those of male volunteers at the University of Cumbria who are reading out the actual and authentic comments provided by those male victims of domestic abuse who responded to a survey she ran during 2017.
  • Dads Unlimited supports the emotional safety of men and those they care about through three key areas: supporting male victims of domestic abuse, supporting men with family separation; and supporting men’s mental health.
