Charity launches “Supporting Male Victims of Domestic Abuse Day”

The ManKind Initiative, in partnership with over 25 supporting organisations from across the UK, has launched the very first ‘Supporting Male Victims of Domestic Abuse Day’ on Wednesday 2 November 2022. The campaign has the slogan: MenYouAreNotAlone.

The aim is to encourage more men to contact their local police force and/or their local domestic abuse service, all of whom will help them to escape from domestic abuse. It also aims to encourage men’s friends, families and work colleagues to identify and support men they know who may be suffering abuse at the hands of a partner or other adult in their home.

The charity, which supports male victims of domestic abuse, has asked organisations providing support services for men experiencing domestic abuse to publicise the help they have available in their local community. By collectively doing this on the day, in addition to other promotional campaigns they run through the year, it is hoped that it will amplify the message across the UK that there is support for men.

Aston spoke to Mark Brooks OBE, chair of the ManKind Initiative.
