LGA responds to funding announced for domestic abuse refuge services

Cllr Simon Blackburn, Chair of the Local Government Association’s Safer and Stronger Communities Board, responded to money announced by the Government to help fund domestic abuse refuge services 

"We are pleased the Government has announced funding to help councils fund domestic abuse refuge services.

“Tackling domestic abuse is an issue that councils take extremely seriously and they need the cooperation of other public services to tackle this appalling crime.

“With long-term, sustainable funding, councils can work with the Government and partners to further safeguard individuals and families from the physical and psychological harm of domestic abuse and prevent it happening in the first place.”
