This is the cover of Research report 86: The impact of changes in commissioning and funding women-only services

The objective of this study was to explore whether the introduction of commissioning procedures and funding cuts were having a disadvantageous affect on the provision of women-only services. The research consisted of two phases: a stakeholder consultation, survey of existing research and analysis of the policy context; followed by fieldwork with 25 women-only service providers including interviews with service users and funders. Service areas covered by the study included domestic violence, offenders and ex-offenders, health, sexual violence and abuse, homeless women, skills and employability support, and ‘one-stop-shops' providing a range of services. Nineteen service providers were based in England, three in Scotland and three in Wales.
