What is Ask Marc?
Ask Marc will offer men living in the Black Country specialist support around rape and sexual violence, childhood sexual abuse, grooming and exploitation, domestic abuse, stalking, forced marriage and so-called “honour”-based violence. Ask Marc sends out a clear message of hope telling victims you don’t have to deal with it alone: someone is here to listen. The service has been made possible with funding from the Office of the West Midlands Police and Crime Commissioner, and was developed by Black Country Women’s Aid in consultation with male survivors of abuse following many years of men accessing the services.
The website www.askmarc.org.uk has now launched and hope you find this a useful resource.
As well as information, you can download leaflets and posters and sign up to join the Ask Marc email list … just visit the ‘Information for professionals’ page (Info for professionals | Ask Marc), which will also give you information as to how to make a referral to the service.
