New Trustees Sought

Do you want help end domestic abuse against men?

The ManKind Initiative (, a ground breaking national charity supporting male victims of domestic abuse, is seeking two new trustees to join its governing board –with professional domestic abuse and/or fundraising experience.

Despite the fact that 600,000 men suffer every year, being a male victim remains one Britain’s last great taboos. Being a trustee will provide a great opportunity to play a pivotal role in changing society, changing public policy and delivering real change to those suffering behind their front doors. With changes in national and local policy, this is a perfect time to become a charity and ensure those changes fully support men and their children.

Following a recent review, the charity has a new three year strategy based on growing its existing services (such as its helpline and national conference) and running more public and policy campaigns to raise awareness. All aimed at achieving its vision of ensuring men are supported in escaping from domestic abuse and ensure that recognition and support for them is fully integrated and mainstreamed. This is particularly important in the statutory and non-statutory delivery of domestic abuse services.

The two new trustees will bring their professional expertise, knowledge and experience to support the charity to deliver its vision and strategy – and help men and any children they have start a new life
