Dear Information Management,

I have very belatedly come across your request for clarification. I do apologise.

The request was for information about services for women experiencing multiple disadvantage, specifically women-only substance use, mental health, homelessness and offending services.

A secondary question aimed to ask how many women each service can support at any one time and when does the contract for the service end.

I do hope you are in a position to take my request forward now.

Yours sincerely,

Jennifer Holly
