The Police & Crime Commissioner for Surrey is responsible for commissioning services that support victims of crime, improve community safety, tackle child exploitation, and prevent reoffending. We operate several different funding streams and regularly invite organisations to apply for grant funding to support the above aims.
For the financial year 2022/23 the Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner used a proportion of locally derived funding to support the delivery of local services. In total additional funding of £650,000 was made available for this purpose, and this paper sets out allocations from this budget.

Have outcomes improved for complainants in sexual offence cases within the court room? There are currently no local models for monitoring what is happening within the court. A court observers panel helps to provide immediate confidence for complainants that their experience is being monitored. This funding enables the establishment of court observer panels for rape cases in Surrey. The Court Observers model will run for 12 months and aim to gain observation of a total of 30 cases in the locality.
