Prime Minister’s Commitment to Exempting Refuges from Housing Benefit Cap

Polly Neate, Chief Executive of Women’s Aid, said:

“We welcome the Prime Minister’s commitment to exempting refuges from changes to the housing benefit cap. It is great news, and we do not doubt her commitment to tackling domestic abuse. We hope as that, as this crisis abates, the Government will find a long-term sustainable funding solution for refuges, so that they do not keep lurching from crisis to crisis. We look forward to working with them on this.”
