Men’s Aid – Campaign for Equality

Registered charity No. 1116309/UK

The idea for Men’s Aid was initialy concieved in 2002 as a way to highlight and help other parents who had problems with the inequality of the UK family courts and their associated services. Over time we realised that there was a lot of injustice and bias against men in local and central government policies and services. A Men’s Aid constitution was signed on the 15th of April 2006 and became a registered charity less than 6 months later on the 7th October 2006. The aim being to help and support all men suffering any form of abuse or discrimination.
Men’s Aid is run and supported by a group of concerned parents and professionals. (About).

Aims and Objectives – Domestic Abuse: This is a social issue and not a gender problem that affects men, women and children. We are campaigning for a fair social approach to the problem, so that all victims receive the help they need regardless of their sex, race or sexual orientation.

Family Law:

  • We provide free information and advice to parents who are seeking to maintain a meaningful and responsible relationship with their children after family break down. We aim to assist parents in their endeavours to achieve equal and just treatment in the Family Courts and from their associated services. We recognize the value of fatherhood and support the concept of equal parenting where parents work together for and in the best interests of their children.

Sex Discrimination:

  • Discrimination erodes and violates a person’s dignity and creates an intimidating, hostile, degrading, humiliating and offensive environment. The national statistics office shows that men receive longer sentences than women for the same crime and men have to work for longer than women before they recieve a pension. We aim for total equality.

Human Rights:

  • The human rights act was not created so that criminals have a better life than their victims. The Human Rights Act failed when a schoolboy arsonist was allowed back into the classroom because enforcing discipline apparently denied his right to education; a convicted rapist was given £4000 compensation because his second appeal was delayed; a burglar was given taxpayers’ money to sue the man whose house he broke into; travellers who thumb their nose at the law allowed to stay on green belt sites they have occupied in defiance of planning laws.
  • The human rights acts aim is to give further effect in UK law to the rights contained in the European Convention on Human Rights. The Act makes available in UK courts a remedy for breach of a Convention right, without the need to go to the European Court of Human Rights in Strasbourg making it cheaper, quicker and easier for the British people to argue for their rights in the British courts. We support the correct use of the human rights act
