Paul Lavelle

After the devastating loss of Paul Lavelle in a domestic abuse incident in 2017, friends and family of Paul came together to create The Paul Lavelle Foundation. The Charity was created to raise awareness of male domestic abuse, support male victims and survivors and provide healthy relationship education as a preventative measure.

The Charity was registered in April 2018 with the intention of raising awareness to male domestic abuse through sports and outdoor activities. Due to the gap in service for support for males experiencing domestic abuse, the response to the Foundation grew considerably.  Our office was opened in February 2019 by Barbara Lavelle and Neville Southall, the organisation was established and has grown from strength to strength ever since.   

After nearly 2 years of hard work, 2020 saw the start of the delivery of the organisation’s activities. The first Healthy Relationship Education workshops in schools, the community sports and activity groups for physical and mental health and well-being and on the 15th July, the Foundation achieved its ultimate aim by opening the first dedicated frontline support service for male domestic abuse in the area.
