The Ministry of Justice (MoJ) has secured £25 million as part of a £76 million government package of support to charities supporting vulnerable people including victims of sexual violence and domestic abuse.
In Surrey, £404,000 of this funding has been provisionally allocated to the Police and Crime Commissioner to work with local Domestic Abuse and Rape and Sexual Assault Services to identify potential gaps in provision caused by COVID-19.
To be eligible for the funding, organisations must be a registered charity, a charitable incorporated organisation, or a social enterprise, including companies limited by guarantee and community interest companies in England and Wales. They must also provide tailored support services to help victims of Domestic Abuse and Sexual Violence cope with the impacts of crime, and, as far as possible, recover from the harm they have experienced.
