Male victims of domestic abuse

Male victims of domestic abuse

Domestic abuse is not acceptable and should never be tolerated, irrespective of the person’s sex or gender identity.

Most domestic abuse is directed at women and girls, but men can also be victims of domestic abuse, both in gay and straight relationships. We support hundreds of men every year, helping them overcome the harmful impacts of being subject to abuse.

“I would say to anyone going through this awful situation please get in touch with IDAS, they will help lift that burden and I would like to say a massive thank you to them for everything they do.. I don’t think they can ever understand what a difference they make in people’s lives.”
