Organisations across the West Midlands are being invited to submit applications to the Victims Fund. Opening on the 3rd April 2018, we will be taking applications from agencies through to the 1st June 2018. This competitive fund, commissioned by the OPCC seeks to improve outcomes for victims of crime across the West Midlands.
Organisations will be able to apply for up to £20,000 to deliver activities which directly support victims to cope and recover from their experience. We particularly welcome applications from the following sectors, identified as priorities in the Police and Crime Plan:
- Domestic abuse
- Sexual abuse
- Hate crime
- Female genital mutilation (FGM)
- Forced marriage and honour based violence
- Modern slavery
- Support services for children and young people
- Fatal road traffic collisions
- Child sexual exploitation
If you would like to come along to one of these events please book a place by emailing Harjeet Chakira on firstname.lastname@example.org. Please note places are available on a first come first served basis.
