The Home Office has released a document on supporting male victims of crimes commonly associated with violence against women and girls (VAWG) that supplements the plan to tackle domestic abuse. The document highlights the specific barriers and vulnerabilities both boys and men face when reporting and seeking support for sexual or domestic abuse, and the need for specialism in the support that services and organisations give.
