New Fund Launched To Support Victims Of Crime
A new fund for projects which support victims of crime has been launched by Cheshire’s police and crime commissioner. Through the Supporting Victims Fund, £160,000 is available for projects that specifically support victims under the age of 18, victims with mental health issues, victims at risk of exploitation or victims of hate crime. £40,000 is available for each priority area; this may be allocated to one project in full or shared between multiple projects which support that particular priority.
Citizens Advice Witness Service
The last year has been a significant one for the Witness Service. The whole service became part of Citizens Advice in April 2015 and since then they have been working hard to make changes to better meet the needs of witnesses across England and Wales.
