Can I use your service even if I don’t want to leave my partner?

We provide specialist counselling, practical information and legal options, while respecting and supporting you in all your decisions should you decide to leave or stay in the relationship.

By the time most men contact Men’s Aid they have may have been experiencing violence, financial abuse, coercive control, and sexual, mental and verbal abuse for many years.

Men’s Aid never advise men what to do, this has to be their choice. We provide a listening ear, and a knowledge on legal options available to them. 

We provide information on domestic violence orders, practical information on homelessness, children’s issues and family law matters regarding guardianship, custody, and access. All of which are issues men face, and sometimes a reason they stay in an abusive relationship.

We also offer one to one counselling, to help men rebuild their lives if they leave, or to support them through the trauma of domestic abuse if they choose to remain in the home.
