Fund for Local Authorities to increase refuge spaces
Local authorities can now bid for a share of a £20 million fund to support victims of domestic abuse.
This new fund will be used to increase refuge spaces and other accommodation for women fleeing domestic violence. From ensuring that victims have somewhere safe to live and recover, to providing education, employment and life skills training, the fund will support a range of services to help victims rebuild their lives.
