Worrying figures @essexpolice showing fall from 5.3% (2016) to 2.6% (2021) in charges of people committing domestic abuse against men. We need answers. It is not due to better prevention as % would be same as it'd apply to female victims too! @EssexPFCC eadt.co.uk/news/crime/essex-…

Anyone can be a victim and anyone the perpetrator. 1 in 3 domestic abuse crimes happen to men. This advertisment is the perfect example of a gender neutral message allowing us to support anyone facing domestic abuse. Well done @dsahelpline @Justice_NI @CommunitiesNI @healthdpt
Trigger Warning From today our advertising campaign will be displayed across Northern Ireland. Do you walk on eggshells in fear of a reaction. If so contact: the Domestic and Sexual Abuse Helpline on 📱 08088021414 📧 help@dsahelpline.org 💻 web chat - dsahelpline.org

Chatting to the partner of a dad going through the family courts. The dad's ex isn't keen on him spending time with their children and has raised all manner of things. Dads new partner: "it seems the professionals in the court see the man but not the dad." Interesting words.
