Mankind's picture
We will campaign to mainstream support for male victims (and their children) of domestic abuse. This has specific resonance on shifting thinking about men and boys' needs in the provision of public services. We believe a large number of statutory agencies are in breach of the Equality Act 2010 - we aim to show that and support them to comply. The ManKind Initiative is a national charity which runs a help-line and information service for male victims (and their children) of domestic abuse. To mainstream the issue of male victims in society and public service delivery it wants to replace the current discriminatory gendered based approach to DA with one based on 'equality and need'.
AMIS (Abused Men in Scotland) will continue to support mainstream agencies in Scotland to improve domestic abuse services and develop partnerships with progressive organisations who recognise the vital importance of responding effectively to male victimisation. We will continue to have our voice heard in mainstream media representing men and their children in Scotland.Abused Men in Scotland (AMIS) is a national organisation dedicated to supporting men who are experiencing, or who have experienced, domestic abuse.  We welcome calls from men in need of support or advice, and from men and women seeking help for male friends or relatives.

Survivors Manchester's picture

And finally, we make a guarantee that the whole team at Survivors Manchester will challenge the myths and stereotypes that keep boys and men suffering in silence and educate society to #breakthesilence

European Men's Health Forum's picture
We will continue to make the case for Europe-wide and national organisations to take action to improve the health of men and boys. In 2014, we will focus particularly on men's use of primary care services and their excess burden of cancer. We will work closely with organisations with similar objectives in the UK and other countries in Europe. EMHF is the only European NGO dedicated to the improvement of men’s health in all its aspects. Its mission is to improve men’s health across all countries in Europe by promoting collaboration between organisations and individuals on the development of health-related policies, research, education and prevention programmes.
We will be working intensively in North London and Birmingham doing "anger management", more appropriately called emotional regulation, at weekends with men and women who are or who have been violent and or aggressive and or abusive to a partner or former partner - Early intervention and with a concentrated effort on parents of young children.We deliver intensive, therapeutic courses in closed groups for men and women. Many men (and some women) get separated from their children and their families, most often because they have not developed enough skills to manage their side of an intimate relationship. We teach and train many of the skills and address the problem areas and emotions.
Our pledge is to find out find out how the services provided by the University could better serve the needs of our male students.
