Funding for housing costs under the existing and proposed new models will continue at the same level. This funding will be ring-fenced and we intend this ring-fence to remain in the long term and local authorities will be required to do a needs assessment for all supported housing services, including domestic abuse.</p><p>We are also undertaking a root and branch review of how domestic abuse services are provided across England. The review will cover funding for refuges, and will be completed by Summer 2018. Thereafter, we will make decisions on the future arrangements for domestic abuse services. We are committed to working closely with the sector, drawing on their expertise and knowledge, so that we get this right.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The Government is providing funding of up to £2.5 million from the local services element of the Controlling Migration Fund (CMF) which is administered by the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government (MHCLG).</p><p>The funding made available for this scheme comes from an existing MHCLG budget; it is not new funding. Therefore Barnett consequentials do not apply.</p><p>The Government has no plans or remit to extend the scheme to local authorities in the devolved nations, which have their own funding arrangements in this area including through the Immigration Enforcement part of the CMF.</p><p>Funding is available for 2018/19 and the Government intends to publish its plans for the national evaluation of the scheme in due course. We expect all participating local authorities to contribute to the evaluation exercise so that lessons can be learned to inform the new arrangements for asylum seeker support from 2019.</p> more like this
