What is Domestic Abuse?

  • Domestic abuse is abusing or controlling behaviour
  • The violence or abuse can be physical, sexual, financial, mental or emotional
  • Such violence can also be directed towards children, other family members or friends of the victim
  • Abusive behaviour can occur in any relationship

Admitting to yourself and others that you are experiencing domestic abuse is very difficult. If you or your family are victims of domestic abuse you may be afraid to ask for help in case it makes things worse, but you don’t have to live with this kind of fear.

Shropshire Domestic Abuse Service Support for Male Victims

Shropshire Domestic Abuse Service exists to provide an outreach and a Children/Young People’s service to men and their children whose lives are affected by domestic violence, to empower them to make decisions for themselves about their own futures.

We work in partnership with local agencies to enable men and children/young people to regain the strength and confidence to take control of their lives and to have a future without fear.

Outreach Service

The service provides:

  • Dedicated support either via face to face meetings, telephone, text or email according to need and individual choice
  • Services in communities through working with other agencies
  • Training and awareness sessions for agencies or individuals

Dispersed Accommodation

We manage diseprsed shared properties based around the county. These can be offered to male victims that are single or have children. At NO TIME will the dispersed accommodation be mixed sex.
