New £20 million fund now open to help victims of domestic abuse - Press releases - GOV.UK

May 27, 2017

This new fund will be used to increase refuge spaces and other accommodation for women.

“Imkaan welcomes the launch of this £20 million fund, which we hope will help to strengthen specialist BME led refuge services. We know from our work with Imkaan members that these critical services have been disproportionately affected by funding cuts, competitive tendering processes and broader challenges. Yet these are often the very organisations that women and children who have experienced violence rely on for safety and support. As such, we welcome the department’s commitment to ensuring that local authorities are resourced to support this vital work. We particularly welcome the commitment to encouraging partnership approaches which acknowledge, and respond to the needs of vulnerable women and children.”

Marai Larasi, Executive Director, Imkaan
