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.
