Male Domestic Abuse

Men have exactly the same rights as women to be safe in their own homes. Men are protected by exactly the same laws as women.

Recognising and accepting you are experiencing domestic abuse, and then seeking support, is difficult for most people. However, often men can find it more difficult. West Mercia Police support the following message for both male and female victims of domestic abuse: "you are not alone, it is not your fault, support is available and we will do our best to investigate and safeguard."
