More men needed to work in domestic violence help

From Morning Report, 8:52 am on 5 August 2019

Māori providers involved in a police-led domestic violence intervention programme say they're struggling to find enough men to work with perpetrators.

The Integrated Safety Response Pilot - which involves a range of agencies including DHBs, ACC and women's refuges - works to ensure victims are safe and perpetrators get help to stop hurting their partners or children.

While it's working for Māori victims, one provider says they don't have the money to help the abusers.
