Scottish Homes is to fund the provision of six self-contained units of refuge accommodation in North Ayrshire for women and children who are unable to be accommodated in communal refuges. This will include women with alcohol or drug dependencies currently on a rehabilitation programme.

Funding has also been granted to three projects which propose to increase multi-agency work on dealing with domestic abuse, and which will involve support services for women who misuse drugs and/or alcohol.
