Jonathan’s House – can you help?




Hello, my name is Jody, and I am the CEO and Founder of a new ministry called Jonathan’s House Ministries. Men who have suffered abuse need a place where they can go and receive support to get past the trauma and other side effects of abuse. Jonathan’s House Ministries firmly believes in all men, and that all men deserve to be healed, restored, and eventually fulfilled. Through building safe spaces and educating people on the effects of abuse, we believe we can change things for male victims of abuse across the UK.

Our vision is to create safe spaces for male victims of domestic abuse to find healing and support through trauma-specific therapy and counselling.  Our first approach is to establish male domestic abuse refuges. The aim is to have these available throughout the UK.

In tandem with this, we work with churches to raise awareness about male domestic abuse. Our website was recently launched in July, and attached to it we have a helpline as well as a webchat. 

We have several volunteer positions available for the right people to join our team:

  1. Church Ambassadors: This will be a fun but challenging role, creating a working partnership between JHM and our church partners. Each Ambassador will work within their local churches to be a listening ear for men who may have suffered from abuse, to create strong networks within their communities for men to come and be part of peer-to-peer groups. Also, as a church ambassador you will work with your pastor to refer victims of abuse to Jonathan’s House Ministries. 
  1. Helpline: We’re looking for pastoral support volunteers to man our phones and online chats. The helpline is an incredibly busy part of this ministry. You will receive phone calls from men and women from all walks of life. 
  1. Fundraising: We are looking for people who can help JHM raise funds to support the men who come into our houses, but also funding for our volunteers.   
  1. Social Media/PR: We need someone to come onboard our team and to manage our social media accounts, to create stories, reels, maintain our great connections with people. Social media is where Jonathan’s House Ministries is creating a good profile and it is our desire to improve in this area. So, if you have experience in this area please get in touch. 

We also want to create safe zones throughout the UK. These safe zones will be places for men to go to find support, and safety from abusive situations. If you are a church leader and would like to know more about how to become a safe zone, then please email

Jonathan’s House Ministries is Christian organisation with a very clear mandate, that is to help men, who have been victims of abuse. We believe that Jesus expects us to be salt and light to the world, we have no political agenda, although there are times when we need to stand in front of politicians to fight for men’s rights. 

 If you would like to be part of our team, then please visit Give Help – Jonathan’s House Ministries ( and apply. If you lead a church and would like to know more about Jonathan’s House Ministries, please call 01633 501406, or email for more information.
