Question

There appears to be hardly any specialist refuge provision for the lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans-gender (LGBT) population in London. Will you consider reviewing this and ameliorating this through your Office for Policing and Crime?

MOPAC is working with London Councils to ensure that there is an accurate picture of refuge provision in London.

This includes understanding specialist provision for different populations including those who are lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender.  This will then be used to inform future refuge commissioning in London.
