Funding to help victims of domestic abuse

Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities (DLUHC) have announced £257 million of funding will go to councils in England to make sure safe accommodation spaces such as refuges and shelters can provide vital support. The support will include counselling, assistance with rehousing, financial advice and play therapy for traumatised children.

The funding, allocated over two years and issued as a flexible grant, will be used by councils to plan support services and work closely with local charities and other service providers to best meet the needs of victims who have had to flee their homes.
