Experiences of male survivors

We want to end domestic abuse for everyone, for good. We know that domestic abuse is experienced by men and boys – as children in the home as well as young people and adults in heterosexual and LGBT+ relationships, and in the potential for child to parent abuse. In all our work we are led by the evidence, and in order to build our evidence base, we’ve developed a survey asking men and boys who are survivors of domestic abuse about their experiences. The survey is now closed and the results are under analysis. Please check this page for updates in the coming months.

The information we gather will help to inform our work, with the ultimate aim of ending domestic abuse. It will also help us to amplify the voices of male survivors, and make sure their views and experiences are heard by those with the power to make change.
