Lack of refuges for men

Interesting article to bring change to help male sufferers of domestic abuse escape.

Mark Brooks, Chair of The Mankind Initiative said:

“But Mr Brooks said: “Many councils have just buried their heads in the sand and hoped the problem would go away… so I suppose they’ve really got away with it for some time.”
He said new funding meant there was “no excuse” and “while there may not be a constant demand, there will be some demand”.
He added: “To achieve that constant availability for men and their children we urge local councils to collaborate with each other so there is a network for men in the immediate or surrounding areas.”

Male stats:

Every year in the UK one in three victims are male, according to the Office for National Statistics
26% of incidents investigated by police were committed against men
Half of male victims fail to tell anyone they are a victim and are two and a half times less likely to tell anyone than female victims
