Leave your home to escape harm...but still be displaced for years after due to housing crisis!? After survivors are due to leave their refuge do you then know what happens to these people/families? Are you aware of the impact on children? Out of touch politicians.
The lack of awareness surrounding the impact of actually leaving DV is shocking. My guess is most survivors struggle to come out & talk openly about their experiences. People often leave with nothing or minimal possessions, they are then displaced causing issues with school/work.
Some refuge settings can be questionable as well as being placed with strangers. After "serving your time" you are then displaced again, highly unlikely the local authority can re-house you so you & your family are placed into temporary accommodation which again could be anywhere
Once in temporary accommodation families face possibility of further displacement as Temporary accommodation isn’t secure, agreements can be dissolved pretty easily. Local authority will place you where ever they can find further temporary accommodation, meaning anywhere!
Again children often being uprooted several times from their school settings. Lack of housing, lack of funding causes all kinds of problems to survivors. An adequate DV bill needs to be passed to address all issues after fleeing. There is currently no system.
