In March 2016, the Home Office, published its 2016-20 Violence against Women and Girls strategy.
Following this, the Government stated that they would dedicate £80 million funding, to provide core support to refuges and other accommodation-based services. This money was also intended for rape support centres and national helplines.
In the spring budget of 2017, a further £20 million was announced to be included towards the initial figure.
