Scottish Labour

Date lodged: 19 December 2018

To ask the Scottish Government what steps it is taking to increase the support services available to male survivors of domestic abuse.

Answered by: Christina McKelvie 16 January 2019

The Scottish Government recognises that all victims and survivors of domestic abuse deserve access to support.

We will hold a roundtable this year to consider the impact on men of gender based violence, looking at their roles as victims of violence, as perpetrators of it and as allies in its prevention. Amongst other things, this will consider support available for male victims.
