This paper seeks views on the government’s proposals for a new approach to support victims of domestic abuse and their children in accommodation-based services in England.
We are consulting on a new delivery model for accommodation-based support. This includes the introduction of a statutory duty on local authorities to provide support that meets the diverse needs of victims of domestic abuse and their children, ensuring they have access to provision that is right for them.
We welcome views on:
- the definition of accommodation-based services and support
- leadership and responsibilities
- local and national accountability
We would like to hear from victims and survivors, service providers, local authorities, police and crime commissioners and other public agencies, as well as other professionals who support victims and their children.
