Men’s Support Services
Men also experience domestic and sexual abuse/violence in an intimate relationship whether that is from a female or male partner or a close family member.
Manchester Women’s Aid provides support from our Outreach Service Team for men who are experiencing or who have experienced domestic and sexual abuse/violence.
A Outreach Worker can provide telephone support or face to face support where an worker will arrange to meet a service user in a community venue that is safe and fully accessible to provide help and support. All our services are strictly confidential.
The Outreach Service provides support and advice on a range of issues including:
Making a safety plan
Legal support and protection
Informing you or your welfare benefit entitlement
Discussing your different housing options
Help around child contact arrangements
Due to the extensive knoweldge of our Outreach Team, workers can also signpost service users that require a more specialist service to those organisations that provide help and make a referral on the client’s behalf.
MWA have a specialist Mental Health Worker and Substances Misuse Practitioner that provide support to our service users experiencing difficulties with mental health, drugs or alcohol.
We can arrange for interpreters to assist with clients who first language is not English.
You can make a self referral into our service and our trained staff members will provide you with advice on your next step. We also take referrals from statutory and voluntary agencies.
