Support for male victims of domestic violence

If you are a male victim of domestic violence, contact our male support worker in confidence on 01482 613 978.

Alternatively visit the DAP website

If you are calling from the local area the telephone number does not appear on your bill. If you use a mobile phone the number shows up on your statement and in your dialled numbers list unless you delete it. If we ring you, our number does not show up on your phone.

You will be allocated a support worker who will talk with you in confidence, and discuss what to do next. This could include discussing how we can take action to improve your safety and your children's safety, how we can take against abusers, and find you emergency temporary accommodation if needed.

If you can't visit our offices to meet with your support worker (for example, if you have a physical disability) we can visit you at home if it is safe to do so, or arrange to meet you at a more convenient location. We can offer -

  • legal advice and support throughout the criminal justice system and in attending the solicitors or court
  • housing advice and support
  • benefits advice
  • referral to specialist support for children and young people
  • referral to health, drug and alcohol services
  • counselling

In an emergency, call 999. The Police take domestic violence seriously and can take action against abusers.
