Respect’s Men’s Advice Line have launched the first wave of their COVID-19 campaign, centred on raising awareness that domestic abuse also affects men and encouraging men to #TalkItOver.
The COVID-19 lockdown restrictions have had a significant impact on all victims of domestic abuse. From March to May this year, the Men’s Advice Line experienced a 100% increase in calls and webchat and emails have also increased significantly in demand. As lockdown eases, Respect are anticipating increased demand for support services. To meet this demand and make it easier for men to #TalkItOver
- Extended opening hours
- Recruited additional advisors
- Started creating a range of resources for men
