star this property answer text <p>The Government is committed to supporting all victims of domestic abuse and continues to engage with victims, survivors and the sector on this issue.</p><p>On 8 March 2018 the Government published the consultation, Transforming the Response to Domestic Abuse, setting out our proposed approach to tackling domestic abuse. The consultation received over 3200 responses from a range of sources including, victims and survivors, support organisations and research experts. The knowledge and expertise extracted from the consultation have informed the measures included in the draft Domestic Abuse Bill and package of non-legislative initiatives.</p><p>On 15 May 2019, I, together with the Minister for Immigration (Caroline Nokes), the Minister of State for Equalities (Baroness Williams of Trafford) and the Parliamentary Under Secretary of State at the Ministry of Justice (Edward Argar) co-hosted a Round Table on migrant women affected by domestic abuse. Representatives from the sector were invited to discuss the issues facing migrant women affected by domestic abuse and the opportunities to tackle these issues.</p><p>The Home Secretary and I are committed to continue this engagement with domestic abuse survivors and representatives from the sector, to ensure the Bill and supporting programme of work is effective and achieves our aim to transform the Government’s response to domestic abuse.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The Department does not centrally hold the number of victims of domestic abuse who are unable to access refuge services in the UK.</p><p>The provision of refuge is a devolved matter. We are carrying out a review of how domestic abuse services are delivered locally across England. To inform our review we have commissioned an audit - being run by Ipsos MORI – which will give us a complete picture of domestic abuse provision across England for all victims, enabling us to assess what impact services are having and to identify any gaps in provision. Thereafter we will make decisions on the future arrangements for domestic abuse services.</p><p>The Destitute Domestic Violence (DDV) concession lifts the no recourse to public funds condition for eligible individuals, granting a period of three months’ leave outside the immigration rules and the ability to apply for access to public funds from DWP, which may be used to help fund alternative accommodation away from their abuser. Government also part funds Women’s Aid to run ‘Routes to Support’ (formerly UK Refuges Online), which provides support to victims who need to access refuges and provides detailed monitoring and analysis of the availability of bed spaces and other services. The funding also supports the ‘No Woman Turned Away project’, which offers caseworker support to victims who have faced difficulties accessing a refuge, including victims with no recourse to public funds.</p><p>Government has consulted on what more can be done to protect domestic abuse victims with no recourse to public funds through the Domestic Abuse Bill, which closed on 31 May. We are currently analysing the 3,200 plus responses received and will carefully consider what future courses of action are necessary.</p>
