In October 2017 we reported on figures showing domestic violence “high-risk” cases in Birmingham had nearly doubled in the last 4 years, but the spending on domestic violence services by Birmingham City Council (BCC) hadn’t seen the same increase .
This was part of a national level investgation carried by The Bureau of Investigative Journalism (TBIJ). They found out that local authorities across England have cut their spending on domestic violence refuges by nearly a quarter (24%) since 2010, according to our new research.
