3)    Ms A Ceesay – Domestic Abuse Funding


I've read the Domestic Abuse Report before this Committee, and the spending proposals.  My understanding is that £241,000 has been used from the £606k MHCLG money to fund Brighton & Hove Refuge, thus freeing up £241,000 from the money allocated to the Domestic Abuse Service contract. 


If this is correct, will this money be ringfenced for domestic abuse services in Brighton & Hove, and how and when will this £241,000 be spent?
