Ministry of Housing, Communities & Local Government: Domestic Abuse Safe Accommodation – COVID-19 Emergency Support Fund

Covid 19 Monday July 20th, 2020

The Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government (MHCLG)’s second round of emergency funding is now available to support domestic abuse safe accommodation services during the Covid-19 pandemic.

The fund will support domestic abuse safe accommodation charities from 1 April to 31 October and will help ensure that:

  • Safe accommodation services can continue operating and keep bed spaces open for victims and their children fleeing from abuse during this emergency.
  • Safe accommodation services can help more victims access these life-saving services.

The funding is to be used for revenue costs (costs associated with maintaining existing services and additional capacity to meet increase in demand) incurred as a result of the coronavirus outbreak. This includes the following:

  • Maintaining existing services (where not met by other income sources or fundable from existing resources of charity) such as: 
    • Staffing costs for additional staff cover.
    • Purchasing of essential supplies, such as food and toiletries for residents where usual support channels are unavailable.
    • Meeting additional Covid-19 costs, such as deep cleaning.
    • Purchasing office equipment to enable remote working where this is practicable.
  • Costs of services for additional capacity to help address increased demand, including accommodation costs of additional bedspaces and staff to support these additional victims.

Deadline: Monday 20 July 2020 or until all funding has been awarded, whichever is sooner.
