On average, the men’s* refuges currently available are two-thirds full. Some have waiting lists. The addresses provided on the map are those of the providers. The locations of the refuges they provide are kept secret in order to ensure residents’ safety.
Our colleagues from Männerberatungsnetz [men’s advice network] offer further men-specific counselling services on topics such as violence (advice for victims and perpetrators), health, sexuality, homelessness, paternity, youth work, work and older men.
Women* affected by domestic violence can find a map of services on the portal of the Zentrale Informationsstelle Autonomer Frauenhäuser (Central Information Office for Autonomous Women’s Refuges, ZiF).
* We respect sexual and gender diversity.
