Anyone can sign this issue. Male lives matter everywhere.

I am a male survivor of domestic abuse, with sole custody of both children. The UK Office for National Statistics shows a 3rd of victims of domestic abuse are male, yet almost all funding is focused on female victims. While female-centric NGOs complain not enough refuges for females, there is not a single refuge for male victims.
My wife was trying to kill me and detailed how she would kill our children - yet I and the kids had to become homeless to get away. Even a phone call to a DA centre for help saw me rejected on the grounds of being male, despite this centre getting funding for both males and females. This is a repeated pattern across the UK.
The entire domestic abuse arena portrays almost all victims as female, despite ONS figures, and males that dare ask for help often end up labelled as the abuser - as initially happened to me.

Male victims and suffering children need proper help. As it stands, almost all funding and help goes for female victims and female abusers pretending to be victims; empowered by systemic-gender bias, as my abusive wife was recorded saying, "They believe women": https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0uNJOtpexm8

We therefore demand national guidance for verifiable, pro-rata funding and assistance for male victims, in line with ONS figures - not just lip service.
