Help At Hand For Male Domestic Abuse Victims (from Thisisdorset)

Help At Hand For Male Domestic Abuse Victims (from Thisisdorset): "A drop-in centre for men suffering from abuse from their families has been opened in Dorchester.

The national organisation ManKind has set up a helpline and the advice centre in the town with support from the West Dorset charity that helps women who are victims of domestic abuse.

Molly Rennie, chairman of the West Dorset Women's Refuge committee, said: 'We now have an amazing service for women and the next step is to support men.

'One in six men suffer from domestic violence along with one in four women people are often surprised it's that many for both."
