Housing Secretary Robert Jenrick has confirmed that councils are being given a boost to provide essential, life-saving support in safe housing for survivors of domestic abuse and their children.

Seventy-five projects across England will share over £16 million, helping up to 43,000 survivors to have access to the help they need as they move towards a safe future, free from domestic abuse.

This announcement follows the confirmation of a new legal duty, which will create a consistent approach to accommodation-based support for domestic abuse victims across England.
