ABOUT US

 

The ManKind Initiative is a charity whose priority is to provide help and support for male victims of domestic abuse/violence.

 

 

Our Objectives

Domestic abuse affects people from all walks of life regardless of gender, sexual orientation or race.

The ManKind Initiative is committed to:

  • Ensuring that all victims of domestic abuse receive the help that they need.
  • Removing gender, sexual orientation and race as barriers to receiving help.
  • Ensuring that all children witnessing or suffering from domestic abuse access the help that they need.
  • Challenging gender specific policies as they are counter-productive to solving the social problems of domestic abuse.
  • Ensuring that safe houses are made available to all victims.
  • Removing gender politics from the issue of domestic abuse and ensuring that men and women work together.

To achieve this, the charity undertakes a number of activities:-

  • Our helpline is manned by trained people who give information and support on all aspects of domestic abuse including reporting incidents, police procedures, housing, benefits and injunctions.
  • We refer people to refuges, local authorities and other support services, where appropriate.
  • We undertake lectures, workshops, and provide information in order to raise awareness of the social problems caused by domestic abuse within society.  We work in partnership with all agencies in order to develop solutions for all victims.
  • We campaign for more recognition, services and support for male victims of domestic abuse/violence.
