Author and Job Role: Lucy Thomas, Commissioning & Policy Lead for Victim Services
Protective Marking: OFFICIAL
Police & Crime Commissioners have the statutory responsibility to provide services to support victims cope and recover. The Ministry of Justice (MoJ) made additional funds available to support victims of domestic abuse and sexual violence and to fund additional ISVAs & IDVAs for 3 years (2022/23 – 2024/25).
As per decision record 12 2023/24 funds were made available for Your Sanctuary towards their children in refuge service. It has subsequently been agreed with the MoJ that any accommodation-based services should come from the Safe Accommodation Fund therefore these funds have been re-profiled.
