The group’s recommendations, contained in a report entitled Creating a Truly Transformative Domestic Abuse Bill, are:


— Sustainable, long-term, secure funding for specialist domestic abuse services and refuges, including coverage for ethnic minority, lesbian/bi-sexual/transgender, disabled and immigrant women;


— Extension of priority need status for housing to all survivors of domestic abuse;


— Specialist support for children who have experienced domestic abuse; and


— A Violence Against Women And Girls Commissioner, with power to enforce national accountability for resourcing, quality and provision of services.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
