Migrants: Domestic Abuse

(asked on 24th July 2023) - View Source

Question to the Home Office:

To ask His Majesty's Government when they plan to publish the evaluation of the Support for Migrant Victims pilot scheme.

This question was answered on 31st July 2023

In 2021 the Government awarded the charity Southall Black Sisters £1.4 million to run the Support for Migrant Victims (SMV) Scheme pilot. This was following the Government’s review (in 2020) of its response to migrant victims who have no recourse to public funds (NRPF). This funding has now been extended until March 2025.

The independent evaluation of the SMV Scheme considered the implementation and delivery of the pilot, the experiences and outcomes for those who accessed it, and how the pilot sat alongside existing support for migrant victims of domestic abuse. A total of 425 victims were supported during the pilot.

When we have carefully considered the findings, we will publish the evaluation in due course.
