8,800 men suffer from domestic abuse in Croydon each year

The Croydon Advertiser revealed that 22,000 people per year in Croydon, in Surrey, suffer from domestic abuse each year including 8,800 men. Of those men, around 1,0o0 suffered more than four incidents.

It was very pleasing that such a profile was given to the number of male victims.

The challenge given the recent finding by NICE and also the fact that there is no known service for male victims of domestic abuse is to ensure that those men suffering are able to get the help they need. If no support is available, including safe house support, then the council and health agencies will be in breach of the Equality Act 2010.
