People are being asked to have their say about services for people at risk of violence and abuse.

A three month consultation has been launched into proposed changes to the housing support and social inclusion services Wolverhampton City Council commissions through The Haven Wolverhampton.

The Haven provides emergency and supported accommodation, as well as outreach support and advice for adults and families with children at risk of violence and abuse.

The proposed changes to the service will ensure that Wolverhampton continues to provide refuge places and support whilst improving the sustainability of outcomes and enabling people to access emergency accommodation services for a longer period of time that they do at present.
