Introduction

Scope

This paper seeks views on the Government’s proposals for a new approach to delivering support to victims of domestic abuse and their children in accommodation-based services in England.  This consultation relates to support for all victims of domestic abuse and their children in accommodation-based services. We have worked with the sector and local authorities to define these services and the associated support services.

These proposals relate to England only. The UK Government will be discussing these issues with devolved administrations.  The purpose of the consultation is to gather evidence and seek views on the delivery of housing related support services. Any policy changes brought forward as a result of the consultation would be subject to appropriate assessment.
 
Through this paper, we are seeking views on the following areas:
  • Defining accommodation-based services and support
  • Leadership and responsibilities
  • Local and national accountability
  • Guidance
  • Supporting all victims of domestic abuse
Duration

This consultation will last for 12 weeks from 13 May 2019 to 2 August 2019.
