To ask the Scottish Government whether it will publish all available information on the operation of the Fund to Leave pilot scheme, including the number of any (a) women who have applied to the scheme and (b) grants provided to date by Scottish Women’s Aid-affiliated groups.
Scottish Women’s Aid is administering the pilot on behalf of the Scottish Government. The information requested is being collected by individual Women’s Aid groups involved in the pilot and will be provided to Scottish Women’s Aid to support administration.
We will work closely with the delivery partners to evaluate the pilot once all funds are spent with a view to evidencing the impact that providing this intervention has on women and to understand how effective it is at preventing their homelessness as a result of domestic abuse.
We will publish the evaluation, along with available data, after the pilot ends.
