Welcome to Men’s Aid Charity
Men's Aid is a Registered Charity (1116309) providing information and advice to all parents who are seeking to maintain a meaningful and responsible relationship with their children after family break down or divorce. We aim to assist these parents in their endeavours to achieve equal and just treatment in the Family Courts and from their associated services. We recognise the value of good parenting and support parents who work together for and in the best interests of their children.
Origins and History of Men’s Aid
Formed in 2006 to help provide practical advice and support to men who have been abused, Men’s Aid has grown to represent the views of many individuals both male and female and is committed to helping those who have suffered from bias in the legal system, Family Courts or other areas. Men’s Aid strives to remove bias and prejudice from all parts of our Society and focuses on providing help and assistance to anyone, regardless of gender or sexual orientation, who may need it.
A Gender Neutral Organisation
Over many years Men’s Aid has undertaken an active Campaign for Equality within our Society to help re-balance many stereotypical views, particularly those held about men. These, often negative views, include male issues relating to parenting, fatherhood, domestic abuse and violence. Governments now recognise that abuse can occur in any personal relationship, or any situation where a service is being given, including formal or informal caregivers, or by a person who has power or influence over the life of a dependent adult. Domestic Violence and Abuse is now recognised as a gender neutral issue by may organisations with violence and abuse against men identified as the ‘last’ taboo.
Men’s Aid also works in partnership with other organisations to promote and raise awareness of other issues relating to Men’s welfare in general. Men’s Aid is active and concerned with the levels of homelessness, suicide, false allegations, sexual offences, Family Law, PTSD and prostate cancer.
