Dear Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government,

In the current Home Office consultation "Transforming the Response to Domestic Abuse" it is mentioned (page 25):

To inform our review, we have commissioned an independent, external audit of domestic abuse services. This will give us a complete picture of provision for all victims across England, enabling us to assess what impact services are having and identify any gaps in provision. The audit will report in spring 2018, and the review will be completed by summer 2018. We are committed to working closely with the sector and local authorities on the audit and overall review, drawing on their expertise and knowledge, to ensure we have a robust evidence base on which to take future decisions about the funding of these vital services.

I asked the Home Office for a response to five questions (see below) and they have stated that you are the Government Department responsible for Questions 1-4 (https://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/4...)

I would be grateful therefore if you could these 4 questions:

Could you please:
1. Name the organisation that you have commissioned
2. Provide the terms of reference for the audit
3. Provide a link (or include) the public tender notice
4. What organisations you have worked and will work with with when you refer to "closely with the sector"

Thank you.

Yours faithfully,
Debbie Westlake
