NDAS support the needs of male clients fleeing domestic abuse in our male refuge. This refuge is one of only nine in the whole of the UK that is solely designated for male victims only.

NDAS recognise that more support for male victims is needed. Below are just some of the statistics that can be found on the Mankind Initiative website, a national charity supporting male victims of domestic abuse.

What to expect coming into refuge

Moving into an unfamiliar environment, leaving personal possessions behind and having to share accommodation with others is a very difficult time for everyone. Life in refuge is not easy, it is an unknown environment and not knowing how long it will be before you are re-housed or waiting whilst occupation orders are obtained to enable you to return to your own home can be challenging.

Alongside this, if you are a parent having to cope with the anxieties of your children leaving their familiar environment and extended family, not knowing when appropriate school places will be available is especially hard.

Support staff endeavour to identify how victims feel and they are committed to making refuge a nice space to live in, supporting residents to move forward in their lives, helping victims to regain their self-esteem and confidence, often with no support from family or friends. When a family moves into refuge a comprehensive support plan is provided.

Areas of support include:

  • Staying Safe
  • Being Healthy
  • Economic Wellbeing
  • Enjoying and Achieving
  • Making a Positive Contribution

Support staff have a broad depth of knowledge to ensure families can access all services to ensure new skills are learnt, helping families move forward in their lives and enabling them to live a life free from abuse and fear. We have strict policies in place to ensure the location of our refuges remain confidential. No visitors apart from pre-arranged appointment with professionals are allowed.

I have arrived with nothing

On occasions, men and their children will flee domestic violence quickly and as a result will have no personal possessions with them at all. Don’t worry, the basics can be provided and support staff will work with you to seek financial support and recover your possessions if necessary.

How long can I stay in refuge?

Some clients stay only a few days, others for a few months whilst they wait for accommodation in a new community. Our refuge gives you temporary accommodation while we support you to find suitable accommodation.

What do you see? A happy, healthy female with not a care in the world?
That could be true... but sadly, statistics tell us that 1 in 4 women and 1 in 6 men in their lifetime will experience domestic abuse.

Following an abusive episode, abusers often show sadness and remorse, showering victims with love, gifts and treating them with extra kindness for a while.
Sadly, this doesn’t last, and tension invariably builds once again resulting in the same old cycle.
Love shouldn’t hurt!
