Abuse or Violence

Men experiencing abuse or violence are entitled to support.
Life can throw unexpected challenges our way, and sometimes, we may encounter incidents that leave us feeling overwhelmed and struggling to cope. If you’ve been through a difficult situation involving abuse or violence, you don’t need to go it alone. Our directory includes community-led organisations and services that focus on supporting those who have faced or are facing incidents of abuse or violence.

Navigating our Service Directory is straightforward and user-friendly. Simply browse through the categories that align with your current challenges or explore different options to see what resonates with you. Each listing provides valuable information about the organisation, its services, and how to connect with them. You have the flexibility to choose services that fit your preferences – whether it’s location, type of support, or the challenge you are facing.

Our Service Directory is continually updated and expanded, ensuring that you have access to the latest and most relevant support services available. If you wish to have your service added, please click here.

If you, or someone you know is in immediate danger, please call 000, visit your nearest hospital or call Lifeline on 13 11 14.
