Another misleading statement in Daniel Storey’s Football365 hit piece – support for victims of domestic violence

In comments I’ve left on Daniel Storey’s Football365 hit piece on J4MB, I’ve pointed to inaccuracies and misleading statements in the piece. One I haven’t mentioned so far, but which is worthy of its own blog piece, is this claim made by Storey:

Amongst the points in Buchanan’s detailed manifesto is criticism for the public funding of women’s domestic abuse organisations such as Women’s Aid…

Our 2015 general election manifesto – the document to which Storey refers – is here. Domestic violence is explored over pp.26-30. We are critical of Women’s Aid and other such organizations – with justification – but there is no ‘criticism for the public funding of women’s domestic abuse organisations such as Women’s Aid’. Rather, there is a demand for public funding to support male victims of domestic violence. Proposal #2, on p.30:

Without reducing the support given to female victims of IPV, [JMB emphasis] Local Authorities should make funding available, and other support, to groups supporting male victims of IPV, whether through the provision of helplines, refuge places, or in other appropriate ways that take account of men’s needs in crises such as this. The amount of funding and support should reflect what is known about the proportion of victims of IPV who are men. Funding should include awareness raising initiatives to make men aware of the existence of support services.
