The Police and Crime Commissioner has two funding streams available – one to commission support services which help victims to cope and recover, the second to deliver the People’s Priorities with community safety partners, voluntary and charity groups.

Victims Fund

In October 2014 Police and Crime Commissioners (PCC) in England and Wales took responsibility for the commissioning of support services for victims and witnesses of crime.

In 2016/17 the PCC will receive funding from the Ministry of Justice totaling £1,372,554 to support this work. In Surrey, the funding is to be allocated to two areas of delivery:

Victim referral, assessment and local support service

The Police & Crime Commissioners for Surrey, Sussex and Thames Valley have worked together to commission a single support service for all three police areas. Victims of crime are referred to this service to assess their needs and support them to cope and recover from their experiences. During 2016/17 we will be using £407,976 of our available funding to support this service.

Specialist Support Services

The Police and Crime Commissioner is also responsible for commissioning local specialist services that meet the specific needs of the people of Surrey, including Domestic Abuse Outreach, refuges and Independent Sexual and Domestic Violence Advisors. For 2016/17 we have £964,578 to support delivery of these services, and organisations are able to apply for funding using the application form below.

The Victims Fund is currently closed. Applications will not be considered at this time.


Community Safety Fund

The PCC has an important role to play in cutting crime and reducing anti-social behaviour, but we are not able to achieve the People’s Priorities working in isolation. The PCC will need to work with and fund a broad range of organisations from the community safety and criminal justice sectors to voluntary and community groups, who have a shared interest in delivering positive outcomes and improved services for residents.

The new PCC is considering how to make the Community Safety Fund more effective and will only consider urgent applications in the current round. It is planned that the new approach and criteria for applications will be announced this autumn.

Applications for this round of the Community Safety Fund close on 30 June 2016 at 5pm.
