Male victims of domestic abuse/violence petition (Scotland)

The Petitions Committee is a genuinely democratic innovation in the Scottish Parliament and allows access by ordinary citizens to raise issues of public importance. A petition titled “Male victims of domestic abuse/violence” was raised by Alison Waugh and Jackie Walls on 23 December 2009.

The petition calls on the Scottish Parliament to urge the Scottish Government to ensure that all publicly funded action (campaigns, publications, action plans, projects, training programmes, etc.) on domestic abuse/violence are overhauled to fully acknowledge the extent to which men are at the receiving end and to address the needs of male victims and their children.
