We can help you with our Peer Support Group

The Peer Support Group Was set up in February 2015 and is nationally the first group of its kind to support male survivors of domestic abuse. It provides an opportunity for members to share their experiences and to learn and support each other on an equal basis.

We enable members to take ownership of the group, discuss their issues and the good support that they have received from the service that all feeds back into individual key-work sessions.

Raising Awareness.

Our support network is reaching out to survivors helping them deal with their situations, helping men develop the confidence and skills to go out into the community and promote the Men Standing Up Service while raising awareness of the serious and challenging issues that male survivors face.

Moving Forward.

We were successful in application to the Safer Communities Fund and have been awarded a grant of £2546 towards developing the group over the coming year. We have secured a well equipped venue can now promote the group and provide trips out for the members.

For this we would like to thank the Police and Crime Commissioner of the Bradford District; Mark Burns Williamson for this gift of support for the service.
