The NSW Government has committed to providing $13 million over four years for Victims Services to pilot new responses for male victims of domestic and family violence, through expert NGO support (you can find details of the Tender process here).

This rollout is a historic Australia-first initiative and hopefully the first of many. It is the first step towards gender equity for family violence victims. It comes after 7 years of lobbying by the One in Three Campaign alongside other individuals and organisations.

The funding for these services is a new stream, and has NOT been taken out of the budget for women's services. Nevertheless we expect Minister Pru Goward to receive a great number of angry letters dismayed at her decision to support male victims.

PLEASE take 5 minutes to email Minister Goward at office@goward.minister.nsw.gov.au to thank her for providing services to male victims of family violence. Even a short one-sentence thank you email is enough.

Thanks for your support!
