Warwickshire County Council has approved a Safe Accommodation Strategy, which provides safe accommodation and support for women, men and children who are at risk of, or have experienced domestic abuse.
The three-year strategy is a requirement of the new Domestic Abuse Act 2021. The Act requires Local Authorities to have a comprehensive strategy that provides both an immediate and a longer-term solution to vulnerable domestic abuse victims.
To help deliver the strategy, Warwickshire County Council has developed a ‘Safe Accommodation Working Group’ which includes representatives from across the county including Refuge – Warwickshire’s Domestic Abuse service provider, colleagues from the county’s five District and Borough Councils and Warwickshire Police
