Scarborough women’s refuge consultation
Wednesday 1 September 2021
We have been consulting with the residents of Newby, Scarborough around a proposal to develop a Women’s Refuge at Danes Dyke. The proposed scheme, comprising 10 apartments and communal spaces within a two storey building, will offer support and temporary accommodation for women and children experiencing domestic abuse.
Scarborough Borough Council has acknowledged the need for a safe, secure, modern and fit-for-purpose facility to tackle the issue of domestic abuse that exists within the local community. Beyond Housing will manage the scheme, focusing on good quality design and build, and work in partnership with the commissioned and experienced care and support provider IDAS to manage the day-to-day running of the service.
In Scarborough, Beyond Housing’s experienced and passionate colleagues are well-represented at local forums, boards and groups around the domestic abuse, safeguarding and community safety agendas. We aim to bring together this local presence and commitment along with our development and management experience to deliver a brilliant and important resource, providing specialist care and support for women and children fleeing domestic abuse.
