We are a charity set up in memory of our mate Paul Lavelle who was sadly taken from us in cruel circumstances in May 2017. After Paul’s loss a large group of us (we have a network of 50 mates) decided to honour Paul and set up the charity to raise awareness of domestic abuse involving men.
We offer therapeutic support to males who feel they are experiencing or have experienced domestic abuse. 45-minute appointment slots are available with our therapeutic advisors who offer a non-judgemental listening ear, emotional support, advice and guidance as well as signposting to other support agencies if necessary.
We also operate a Drop-In service in our Community Hub each Thursday 4pm to 8pm for males who are experiencing domestic abuse, or who have left an abusive relationship, can meet up and speak with like-minded males for peer support, as well as speak to our therapeutic advisors. No appointment is necessary, just turn up between the hours stated above.
Clients' feedback that being able to speak to therapists, and peers who have come out of abusive relationships and acting as a mentor is a powerful and fundamental part of their recovery.
