Domestic abuse safe accommodation fund

30 November 2020

The government announced the successful applicants to its domestic abuse safe accommodation fund on 26 June 2020, 2 July 2020 and 16 September 2020.

On 18 November, as part of overall funding announcements on how domestic abuse services will be helped to deal with increasing demand this winter, the government also announced a funding boost for rape and domestic abuse support.

£683,000 will be awarded to 34 domestic abuse organisations which received allocations from one or both of the two original £2 million pots of coronavirus funding, subject to demonstrating a need for extra funds.

The Ministry of Housing Communities and Local Government (MHCLG) has extended the spending period for the £10 million emergency funding for domestic abuse safe accommodation charities, to ensure extra spaces are available place over winter.
