Talk it over
The Men’s Advice Line is a confidential helpline for all men experiencing domestic violence by a current or ex-partner. This includes all men – in heterosexual or same-sex relationships.

The Men’s Advice Line offers emotional support, practical advice and information on a wide range of services for further help and support.

Our focus is to increase the safety of men experiencing domestic violence (and the safety of their children) and reduce the risk.

How we help
We want to give all men who experience domestic violence/abuse the chance to talk about it.

We provide emotional support, we can give you practical advice and we can inform you of specialist services that can give you advice on legal, housing, child contact, mental health and other issues.
