ManKind Initiative: Annual Domestic Abuse Conference

14 November 2018 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

From £50

National conference on male victims of domestic abuse

“Surviving Domestic Abuse: Experiences, Services and Solutions”

Wednesday 14th November 2018

(09:30 to 16:30)

Venue: Premier Meetings Manchester (Piccadilly), 72 Dale Street,

Manchester, M1 2HR

Why attend

One in every six men in Britain will suffer from domestic abuse in their lifetime whilst one in every three domestic abuse victims are male. There is a growing need to ensure men and their children receive male-victim friendly support and responses from organisations in the statutory, private and third sectors – at a local, regional and national level. This includes ensuring statutory, safeguarding and equality obligations are met.

This is the sixth national conference the charity has held. Delegates will hear from a range of survivors, professionals and academics working across the domestic abuse sector.

They will  highlight how you can help ensure male victims and their children in your local community escape. This includes setting up male-victim friendly services and public communications campaigns through to explaining the experiences and barriers these victims face. The academics will also set out their latest research findings.

This is the sixth annual conference (all previous five have been sold out) with places for over 100 delegates. The 2017 conference was CPD accredited (six points) and we are awaiting for confirmation for 2018.


Who should attend

Those working in community safety, public health, social services, domestic abuse, the legal system (police, solicitors, CPS, probation), adult & children safeguarding,  public health, housing associations, health service, victim support, anti-social behaviour, men’s health & welfare, equality & diversity, voluntary/third sector, students, academics & researchers.
