Dear Sir/Madam

Re: Freedom of Information Act (2000) Request: Strengthening accommodation based specialist domestic abuse service provision (2014/15)

I am writing as a researcher on behalf of the ManKind Initiative charity.

On 9 March 2015, the Department of Local Government and Communities announced that Brighton and Hove City Council had been successful in its funding bid to the strengthening accommodation based specialist domestic abuse service provision (refuge spaces) fund.

In that regard, I would be grateful if you could provide the following information under the Freedom of Information Act (2000):

(1) How many refuge spaces did you bid for which were dedicated to supporting female victims of domestic abuse?

(2) How many refuge spaces, dedicated to female victims of domestic abuse, have you been successful in receiving funding for?

(3) How many refuge spaces did you bid for which were dedicated to supporting male victims of domestic abuse?

(4) How many refuge spaces, dedicated to male victims of domestic abuse, have you been successful in receiving funding for?

(5) If you were successful in bidding for refuges spaces dedicated to male victims of domestic abuse, what organisation(s) will be providing those refuge spaces?

Thank you for your time and consideration and I look forward to hearing from you.

Yours sincerely
