Over 100 successful charity bids across England will receive a share of £8.1 million government funding to continue to provide life-saving services during the current crisis.
This funding will support domestic abuse safe accommodation services. It will provide over 1,500 bed spaces beds to support survivors of domestic abuse at risk during the pandemic, and will also support the critical work these charities do to help survivors and their children to rebuild their lives.
Over a third of successful applicants offer specialist services to particular groups such as BAME, LGBT and disabled victims.
The funding comes from £10 million that has been made available to domestic abuse charities to support them during the Covid-19 pandemic.
A second bidding round opened on the 5th June to allocate the rest of the funding.
