Response

As a second tier, district authority we do not directly fund Domestic Abuse services. Please contact Essex County Council for this information.

The Council did contribute to Basildon Women’s Aid ( Refuge) as follows, but in financial year 2015/16 this ended as Safer Places were commissioned to provide these services across Essex, including Brentwood.
