3. Hostel. After looking at and observing the nature of the local hostel / night shelter I refused to stay in it. The lawlessness within made it extremely likely that I would meet any infringement of my personal space or threat of violence towards me, which is the norm in such places, with extreme barbarity, given my mental state at the time. As far as I know there are only 2 refuge centres for male victims of domestic abuse in the south of England yet there are 100s for female victims. Given the most recent statistics on domestic abuse, this disparity is another inexplicable indicator of injustice in the system.
