To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, pursuant to the answer of 16 March 2020 to Question 28041 on Domestic Abuse: Children, whether the Domestic Abuse Commissioner has been asked to make recommendations to Government on how to address the needs identified in delivering community-based support services.
16 April 2020
As I indicated in response to the Hon Member’s Question 28041, the Domestic Abuse Commissioner has agreed to lead an in-depth exploration of the current support landscape for domestic abuse in England and Wales over 2020/21.
It will be a matter for the Commissioner to determine how to conduct this review and what to include in the report on her findings. However, it is open to the Commissioner to include any such recommendations as she may see fit with a view to driving improvements to the provision of community-based support services across England and Wales.
