Domestic abuse

Ian Tyes made this Freedom of Information request to Cambridge City Council

The request was successful.

From: Ian Tyes

1 March 2012

Dear Cambridge City Council,

I notice from the latest Kings Hedges Neighbourhood Partnership
magazine that the 'New Directions Service' is offering support only
to female victims of domestic abuse and is partly funded by
yourselves.

Please could you confirm how much money you give to all similar
organisations for male and female victims of domestic abuse.

Since it is likely that you do not fund any services for male
victims, please could you supply a copy of your latest equality
impact assessment for these grants and how you justify
discriminatory funding with your public sector equality duty under
the Equality Acts, particularly since the number of actual (not
reported) male and female victims of domestic abuse is about equal?

Yours faithfully,

Ian Tyes
