Gloucestershire’s commissioning team within the Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner has been awarded a further £119,000 from the Ministry of Justice to support victims and survivors of domestic abuse and sexual violence across the county.
This is in addition to the £595,000 awarded earlier in June 2021 to fund seven new roles in the area.
The OPCC has said that the money will be split between a range of charities and organisations in the county such as Teens in Crisis, Gloucestershire Counselling Service and Gloucestershire Rape and Sexual Assault Centre – to best support victims and survivors.
Gloucestershire’s new Police and Crime Commissioner, Chris Nelson said: ‘I’m pleased my office has been able to secure this government funding for seven worthwhile organisations in the county.
‘I’m sure their important work will make a real difference to the lives of victims and survivors in Gloucestershire.’
