Devon MALE started in March 2003 as a pilot project with an initial twelve month funding stream from Devon County Council.
The project started with very modest objectives:
- To offer a range of support, information & counseling services to men who are experiencing or have experienced domestic violence and abuse from intimate partners
- To provide a telephone advice line for a minimum of 28 hours per week
- To provide face to face outreach work
- To liase with other relevant service providers from the statutory and voluntary sectors
