Our thanks to Steve for this. An extract, emphases ours:
Nicole Jacobs, the Domestic Abuse Commissioner, has called on the Government to set up a fund, similar to TSB’s scheme, to help all victims of domestic abuse.
Similar calls are being made by Women’s Aid and Surviving Economic Abuse, which want the Government to provide an emergency support fund covering every local authority.
The fund would help women to flee domestic abuse and cover the short-term costs of moving.
The fund should be available to all women, the charities say, including those with no recourse to public funds.
