We propose that the domestic violence immigration rule, which currently allows some women subject to immigration control and domestic violence indefinite leave to remain in the UK, be extended to all women in this position, and that all types of evidence of domestic violence should be accepted as sufficient proof. We also propose that the no recourse to public funds rule be reformed so that all victims of domestic violence are entitled to the financial support and safe accommodation they require to leave an abusive relationship irrespective of their immigration status.
