Welcome to Shelter Scotland. This site uses cookies. Read our cookie policy. Close message and continue. It's not just women who become victims of domestic violence and abuse. Male victims can also experience domestic abuse at the hands of their wives, partners or ex-partners, whether female or male.

Whilst specific support services are not as widely available, the statutory and legal remedies open to women wishing to escape an abusive relationship apply equally to men. This domestic violence and abuse can lead to male victims feeling shame, guilt, isolation and worthlessness. Due to social prejudices, men can find it even harder than women to let other people know that they are being abused and to seek help. You may be afraid that you won't be taken seriously, or that you'll be criticised or even ridiculed for 'letting' your partner abuse you.

Many abused men are reluctant to leave the family home in case they are later denied contact with their children. Men have the same rights as women to live in safety, and the remedies listed in this section are available to both men and women experiencing domestic abuse. Support services specifically for men are not widely available in Scotland, but any domestic abuse agency should take you seriously and offer you advice, help or support.

At present there are no refuges for abused men in Scotland, but if you find yourself with nowhere to stay, you should still contact your local council,. You can also make a homeless application to your local council or a council in another area.

Councils take domestic abuse situations very seriously, and your homelessness officer should never try to push you to return home if you are in danger there.

The page on getting help lists agencies that offer practical help and emotional support to men experiencing abuse. Chat with us - we're online. Are you with us? If you're still looking for help, try searching , or find out how to contact us.

Welcome to AMIS

He met his partner in and they connected straight away, moving in together after a whirlwind romance. It happened after a celebratory dinner that evening when the pair shared a taxi home. She accused him of flirting with the waitress and smacked him in the face, marking the start of her physical abuse. In the months that followed Mr A suffered numerous black eyes, cuts and had his nose broken twice. Yet he still loved her, felt she was sick and preferred not to report her behaviour where possible; after all, she always apologised in the end.


Присяга, которую Чатрукьян принимал, поступая на службу в АНБ, стала непроизвольно прокручиваться в его голове. Он поклялся применять все свои знания, весь опыт, всю интуицию для защиты компьютеров агентства, стоивших не один миллион долларов. - Интуиция? - с вызовом проговорил .

Стратмор знал, что его следующий шаг имеет решающее значение. От него зависела жизнь Сьюзан, а также будущее Цифровой крепости. Стратмор также понимал, что первым делом нужно разрядить ситуацию.

В отчет вкралась какая-то ошибка? - Мидж промолчала. Джабба почувствовал, что она медлит с ответом, и снова нахмурился.  - Ты так не считаешь. - Отчет безукоризненный. - Выходит, по-твоему, Стратмор лжет. - Не в этом дело, - дипломатично ответила Мидж, понимая, что ступает на зыбкую почву.

Domestic abuse against men rises in Scotland

У всех сегодня красно-бело-синие прически. Беккер потянулся и дернул шнурок вызова водителя. Пора было отсюда вылезать. Дернул. Никакой реакции. Он дернул шнурок в третий раз, более резко. И снова. - На маршруте двадцать семь их отсоединяют.

Jul 23, - Abused Men in Scotland, known as AMIS, operates out of an Edinburgh centre but supports men throughout Scotland, from the Borders to Orkney.

Беккер был на седьмом небе. Кольцо у нее, сказал он. Наконец-то. Он не знал, каким образом она поняла, что ему нужно кольцо, но был слишком уставшим, чтобы терзаться этим вопросом.

 - Если не скажешь, тебе меня больше не видать. - Врешь. Она ударила его подушкой. - Рассказывай.

Дайте немножко денег, чтобы я могла вернуться домой. Я вам все верну. Беккер подумал, что деньги, которые он ей даст, в конечном счете окажутся в кармане какого-нибудь наркоторговца из Трианы. - Я вовсе не так богат, я простой преподаватель.

По сути, это был самый настоящий шантаж. Он предоставил АНБ выбор: либо рассказать миру о ТРАНСТЕКСТЕ, либо лишиться главного банка данных.

 - Он улыбнулся и сразу перешел к делу.  - Мы вместе спустимся.  - Он поднял беретту.  - Ты найдешь терминал Хейла, а я тебя прикрою.

В кабине стоял какой-то мужчина. Беккер успел заметить лишь очки в железной оправе. Мужчина поднес к носу платок. Беккер вежливо улыбнулся и вышел на улицу - в душную севильскую ночь. ГЛАВА 42 Вернувшись в комнату, Сьюзан, не находя себе места, нервно ходила из угла в угол, терзаясь мыслью о том, что так и не выбрала момент, чтобы разоблачить Хейла. А тот спокойно сидел за своим терминалом. - Стресс - это убийца, Сью.

Глаза ее были затуманены. - Танкадо успел отдать его за мгновение до смерти. Все были в растерянности. - Ключ… - Ее передернуло.
