Nearly 7,000 women in Lewisham were referred to domestic violence services in five years, according to a Freedom of Information request.
Lewisham commissions the Athena service, which is run by domestic violence charity Refuge.
It offers support to residents in the borough who are experiencing gender-based violence.
In 2015 1,065 women were referred to Athena, 1,416 in 2016, 1,525 in 2017, 1,585 in 2018, and 1,318 in 2019.
The number of men referred to the service was 3% of the figure for female referrals at 270 in five years, although male referrals went up by nearly 10% between 2015 and 2019.
Thirty-six men were referred in 2015, 48 in 2016, 53 in 2017, 72 in 2018, and 61 in 2019.
Lewisham Councillor Brenda Dacres, cabinet member for safer communities, said the council is “absolutely committed to doing everything possible to tackle domestic abuse in all its forms”.
