Violence Against Men

Men’s violence against women is not the only form of violence. Domestic violence is experienced by both men and women. Perpetrators of violence against men include their children, wives or partners, parents, siblings and carers.

We acknowledge the majority of domestic violence victims in Australia are women, and this is most likely to be perpetrated by a man. At the same time, female domestic violence against men and occurs too.

All forms of violence are unacceptable.

Male victims of domestic violence often feel a sense of shame about their abuse. It is important to remember that it is never your fault.

If you are male and are a domestic violence victim there are services that can help you.
