A new domestic abuse One Stop Shop will be opening in the new year, exclusively for male victims. In the UK, one in 6-7 men will be a victim of domestic abuse in their lifetime and nearly half (49%) won’t tell anyone due to the shame and stigma of being associated with abuse of this kind (compared to female 19% of female victims). 11% of male victims (7.2% of women) have considered taking their life.
The service will be delivered by Cranstoun Transform, Sutton's provider of domestic abuse services. The One Stop Shop will be launched on Thursday 19th January from 10 am to 1 pm. Everyone deserves a life without domestic abuse. For more information, please visit their website.
Details on venue, dates, and meeting times are available in this flyer.
