WOMEN’S REFUGES: RESETTLEMENT SERVICES

This briefing emphasises the importance of providing resettlement support to women and children when they are rehoused, after leaving the refuge. It sets out key elements that might be included in a package of resettlement support.
It discusses funding arrangements, including any eligibility for THB.

Note that decisions about eligibility of any support charge for funding through THB, and the level of charge that can be met, are made by the Housing Benefit Officer

The briefing will be updated if necessary, once the details of the Supporting People Grant regulations have been finalised.
