New Campaign Launched To End Domestic Violence

Posted by familydynamics on February 24, 2008

A NEW £10m campaign to crack down on domestic violence is to be launched by the Scottish government. It is hoped the money will help reduce the misery caused by attacks and assaults in the home which is estimated to cost the country’s economy around £1.5bn a year.

Latest figures estimate that there were 47,000 such incidents in Scotland last year, however, experts believe that figure to be just the tip of the iceberg.

    Is any of it going to be spent on providing support for male victims of domestic violence?

    Thought not.

    I am not sure. Every victim of domestic violence should be helped regardless of gender.
