Helping male victims of domestic violence conference

The ManKind Initiative, the charity that supports male victims of domestic abuse has brought together an excellent array of experts to speak at a national conference on 22 February 2012.

Both The ManKind Initiative and the issue of domestic violence featured at The First National Conference for Men and Boys and was one of many topics that delegates felt warranted a conference in its own right.

The charity has brought together a broad range of specialist speakers such as charity workers, legal experts, psychologists and housing specialists to offer a range of sessions on topics such as:

  • Providing support to male victims of domestic abuse
  • Providing support to male victims in a refuge
  • Male victims and their children – what do they think?
  • Male victims and the law – experiences of a solicitor
  • How to support members of the LGBT community
  • The psychology of a female perpetrator
  • Male victims of forced marriage
  • The public sector equality duty and communications

The conference, chaired by Ian McNicholl, a domestic abuse survivor, aims to improve the ways support services are provided to male victims and their children.

Delegate places range from £35 to £75 per delegate with discounts for block booking and is aimed at those in the public, private and third sectors, as well as others with an interest in supporting male victims of domestic abuse.

The conference is held in Taunton which is connected to both the motorway and main train networks.
