Domestic Violence

We believe that abuse should never be gendered and all genders are equally at risk of being abused and all genders can equally be abusers. As part of our mission, it is important we end the stigma males face when coming forward. The Johnny Depp case against Amber Heard has seen an increase in men recognising they might be being abused and due to the stigmatisation and only focusing on violence against women, this has had a negative affect and a hole in vital services to survivor's of Domestic Abuse or Violence.
