We are a charity set up in memory of our mate Paul Lavelle who was sadly taken from us in cruel circumstances in May 2017.
After Paul’s loss a large group of us decided to honour Paul and set up the charity to raise awareness of domestic abuse involving men.
If you would like to get in touch with us, please feel free to send us an email using the address below and let us know how you would like us to get back to you and when you are available.

CAMPAIGNING, RAISING AWARENESS & ERADICATING STIGMA
The PLF has a very extensive network of supporters who were all fiends of Paul Lavelle. It’s this network of family and friends that continues to campaign and raise awareness to male domestic abuse through various fund-raising activities and events. We strive to eradicate the stigma involved with males speaking out about domestic abuse and mental health and wellbeing concerns in general.
ADVOCACY, ADVICE & SIGNPOSTING
We run a weekly Drop-In Hub for advocacy, advice and signposting for males suffering from domestic abuse. The service supports males who are currently in an abusive relationship, as well as survivors who need support after experiencing domestic abuse.
We run a dedicated telephone support line for advice and referrals, which again supports male sufferers and survivors of domestic abuse.
SUPPORT GROUPS AND ASPIRATION RAISING COACHING
Community activity support groups are run weekly by The PLF from various locations on Wirral. Cycling, running, swimming and walking groups are open for all to attend with the intention of setting new goals, raising aspirations to achieve and accomplish new challenges.
The groups are a safe place to speak out and seek advice about domestic abuse as well as any other mental health and wellbeing concerns.
HEALTHY RELATIONSHIP EDUCATION WORKSHOPS
The PLF endeavours to educate in characteristics of healthy relationships and anti-abuse. We deliver a variety of workshops in schools, colleges and the workplace.
Times of Opening
Wed: 14:00 – 18:00
During the COVID-19 period, our Drop-In Hub will operate as an appointment based frontline service only, to fall in line with current Government measures and restrictions.

We are offering a Frontline, COVID-19, response service for males who feel they are experiencing or have experienced domestic abuse.
The service will offer advice, emotional support and sign posting to other support agencies if necessary.
