We changed our name from “Northampton Women’s Aid” to Northamptonshire Domestic Abuse Service in 2017. We recognise that it is not only women that can be victims of abuse, so we changed our name to reflect this. Our statistics tell us that, during their lifetime, more than 61,000 men (one sixth of men) in Northamptonshire have experienced domestic abuse.
NDAS provides one of only seven refuges solely for the use of men in the UK. We provide practical and emotional support to help them move on from the trauma of their abuse to enable them to live their lives free from fear.
50% of men that call a helpline have never spoken to anyone before about the about the abuse they are suffering and 71% would not have called if the helpline was not anonymous
