  • Date lodged: 23 April 2024
  • Current status: Answered by Siobhian Brown on 2 May 2024


To ask the Scottish Government what its position is on whether it supports a full review and inquiry into the closure of Glasgow East Women's Aid, in light of recent reports of alleged financial irregularities at the service made by Unite members.


The Scottish Government is aware of the current situation at GEWA. We are working with our fund managers, Inspiring Scotland, and other funders of GEWA to ensure support is available to survivors. Glasgow Health and Social Care Partnership, a key funder, is working on refuge contingency plans for those affected.

It would not be appropriate to comment on any speculation surrounding the finances of the organisation or on matters relating to potential legal or employment disputes.
