We are working with local and national partners to develop a pilot for ‘residential women’s centres’ in at least five sites across England and Wales.

We want to ensure that the models we test are appropriate for their local context. This may require multiple local partners, including those from statutory and voluntary sectors, working together. Therefore, at this stage the timetable is not yet finalised.

However, we are undertaking an initial engagement process with stakeholders and potential providers and partners to refine the design and delivery model for the pilot. This is taking place over the next few months and will support our co-design approach for taking forward the pilot.
