Greater Manchester published it’s
Gender-Based Violence Strategy in September 2021. Within this there
was a commitment to look at the needs of male victims of
Gender-Based Violence. Therefore, the securing of a male refuge and
bespoke support for male victims will begin to address this need,
and additionally enable us to better identify what the needs of
male victims are in future.
GMCA has allocated funding to the delivery of the GBV Strategy. Through providing contributory funding to the GM Male Refuge GMCA is both recognising that this will begin to address some of the priorities within the strategy and will also contribute to the overall GM offer to male victims and an ability to provide accommodation to up to 12 male victims of domestic abuse every year within a 6-bed refuge.
Trafford are using a cross-commissioning and collaboration approach to this across Greater Manchester, and it is key we contribute alongside our local authority partners to the development of the male refuge.
