The Cabinet Office said Tuesday it will provide a toll-free, round-the-clock hot line service for both male and female victims of sexual and domestic violence for two months from February.
“We hope we will be able to help victims who are suffering alone and to use the service to create a future support system for them,” a Cabinet Office official said.
According to a 2008 Cabinet Office survey, over 60 percent of women victims of sexual assault never consulted anyone about their suffering. (AP)
