We had a great time celebrating International Men’s Day this year.
Holly, our Volunteer & Involvement Officer and Wayne our Young Person’s DIA went to VoiceFM for the Thursday Morning Breakfast show. They had a great time with Ryan and Dani talking about International Men’s Day and to highlight the importance of men being able to access services such as Yellow Door. Roughly 15% of referrals we over the last year were from men.
The UK themes for International Men’s Day this year are:
- Making a positive difference to the wellbeing and lives of men and boys
- Promoting a positive conversation about men, manhood and masculinity
- Raising awareness and/or funds for charities supporting men and boys’ wellbeing
At Yellow Door, we want everyone to know that there is help out there for those who have been impacted by domestic and/or sexual abuse. We have a wide range of services that are here to help you.
Statistics show that 1 in 6 men have been sexually abuse or assaulted. And 1 in 6-7 men will be a victim of domestic abuse in their lifetime. This is not ok!
If you need support, please do not hesitate to get in contact with us.
