The Safer Wales Dyn project provides support to Heterosexual, Gay, Bisexual and Trans men who are experiencing Domestic abuse from a partner.
The Safer Wales Dyn helpline lets you speak confidentially to someone who can listen to you without judging your situation. We can give you support to deal with the problems faced and tell you if there are any services already available in your area.
This website provides information for men who are experiencing domestic abuse, including basic safety advice, a facility to email us for support and a guide to services in local authorities across wales.
We are a Safer Wales project (www.saferwales.com). We are funded by the Welsh Government and the South Wales Police and Crime Comissioner.
Domestic Abuse can happen to anyone
“Domestic abuse is the misuse of power and control by one adult over another adult person within the context of a close personal relationship. Abuse can be physical, emotional, psychological, sexual or financial.”
It can happen to anyone regardless of age, gender; race; religion or sexual orientation.
Even though people assume domestic abuse is mainly about physical violence, it includes a range of actions against a person including name-calling, isolating from friends and family, emotional mind games and threatening.
Every man has a right to feel safe.
While the majority of victims are women, men do experience domestic abuse and need support in the same way.
It is often hard for men to get help in these situations because of fears about being ridiculed, not being believed or being treated unfairly by agencies.
