‘Restored’ is an international Christian Alliance working to transform relationships and end violence against women. We work with and through the church at international, national, regional and local level providing training and resources to equip churches and their members to respond.

‘Women’s Aid’ is the national charity for women and children working to end domestic abuse. We are a federation of over 220 organisations providing more than 300 lifesaving services to women and children across England. They provide a 24 hour emergency helpline.

Domestic violence against men has been around for centuries but has largely been a hidden issue. Call it domestic violence or call it domestic abuse - it isn't just women who are victims, there are abused men too. Male victims of domestic violence are increasingly speaking out and looking for support but there are few support services for them, bias against them and little understanding of the issues they face. Links to two websites and organisations are below.
