Get Help Now

We provide a number of support services which are available to any man (or anyone who does not identify as a woman) over 16, in Scotland, experiencing domestic abuse. We work nationally to ensure that as much support as possible is accessible to such men. We understand everyone deals with situations differently, and we tailor support to suit individual needs.


We also welcome calls from friends and family who may be concerned about a loved one. We will support any man (including trans-gender and non-binary people), whether in a mixed-sex or same-sex relationship.


We know that it can be difficult to talk about domestic abuse, especially to a stranger on the phone. Our team are all trained and will meet your call with a non-judgmental and sensitive approach. You may have decided that we are the first point to disclose domestic abuse, but you won’t be the first person we have spoken to.


If you think you are suffering from domestic abuse we can help you take the first steps to ending the abuse.

Call Our Domestic Violence Helpline

Our Domestic violence helpline for men is open Monday to Friday 9:00 am to 4:00 pm. Whether you want to take the first steps to dealing with an abusive relationship or just want to someone to talk to, give us a call today on
