The LGA supports the creation of a statutory definition of domestic abuse, and the inclusion of economic abuse within this. We are also pleased to see that the new legislation will place the role of the domestic abuse commissioner on a statutory footing.
The LGA continues its work to help shape and influence the national agenda, shine a spotlight on councils’ outstanding work, and push for the powers, flexibilities and sustainable funding local government needs to provide much-needed support to our communities now and into the future.
The LGA’s engagement with Westminster has looked a little different this year, but we have still influenced key legislation and committee inquiries.
