“Supporting Male Victims of Domestic Abuse”

 —  —

Mercure Bristol Holland House Hotel, Redcliffe Hill, Bristol, BS1 6SQ

Organised by Mankind Initiative

"One in every six men in Britain will suffer from domestic abuse in their lifetime whilst one in every three domestic abuse victims are male. There is a growing need to ensure men and their children receive male-victim friendly support and responses from organisations in the statutory, private and third sectors – at a local, regional and national level. This includes ensuring statutory, safeguarding and equality obligations are met.

This is the seventh national conference the charity has held. Delegates will hear from a range of survivors, professionals and academics working across the domestic abuse sector.

Three survivors will speak candidly about their experiences – what happened to them, what support they received and how they have rebuilt their lives.

Other speakers will highlight how you can help ensure male victims and their children in your local community escape. This includes setting up male-victim friendly services and public communications campaigns through to explaining the experiences and barriers these victims face.

The academics will also set out their latest research findings including new research on male victims of coercive and controlling behaviour.

This conference has places for over 100 delegates (over 100 attended the conference in Manchester last year). The conference has six CPD Points."
