Ministry of Housing, Communities & Local Government Funding

In August 2018, Safer Leeds led on a bid to the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government on behalf of the 5 local authorities in West Yorkshire. This secured £499,223k to roll out good practice around domestic violence with a focus on complex needs. The decision requires acceptance of this grant funding.  As a direct result of this funding, we will be required to transfer £94,430 in 2018/19 financial year and £192,637 in 2019/20 (Total - £287,067.00) in five equal parts to each of the other four councils in WY (four parts) and one commissioned provider in Leeds (one part).
