Help for men experiencing domestic violence and abuse
Whilst we are called Manchester Women’s Aid, we do offer services for men suffering from domestic violence and abuse. Nobody deserves to live a life in fear, and our work aims to stop domestic violence and abuse in all its forms.
Community outreach for men
Dedicated outreach workers from Manchester Women’s Aid are assigned to help men at risk from domestic violence and abuse. By working alongside partner organisations we’re able to deliver a programme of care that helps you live a safer and happier life.
