Nottinghamshire Police and Crime Commissioner Paddy Tipping has secured more than £400k of extra funding to support victims of domestic abuse and sexual violence amid the pandemic. The funding, which amounts to £424,514, comes on top of the PCC’s usual Ministry of Justice (MoJ) Victim Services’ Grant.
As part of the £40m funding, the MOJ has provided PCCs with an uplift to their core victim support grant that is targeted at community based support services for victims of sexual violence and domestic abuse. Allocations for Nottinghamshire are as follows:
- Domestic Abuse - £196,355
- Sexual Violence - £139,533
The Rape Support Fund of £88,626 has already been allocated locally because in Nottinghamshire the MOJ's Rape Support Fund is devolved to the PCC.
