Domestic Abuse Against Men Project
The DAAM Project offers help and support for male victims of domestic abuse and violence.
We believe that men who experience domestic abuse are hugely under represented, with little resources, information, help or advice available.
The DAAM Project aims to give men suffering from domestic abuse practical advice, information and emotional support, in an effort to reduce the risk of further harm.
The DAAM project is run by a team of student nurses at Sheffield Hallam University.
Our focus is to increase the safety of men experiencing domestic violence (and the safety of their children) and help them reduce the risk.
LET’S BREAK THE SILENCE ON DOMESTIC VIOLENCE
Male victims (29%) are over twice as likely than women (12%) to not tell anyone about the partner abuse they are suffering from**.
