National indicative funding:

  • £15.7m ring-fenced funding for domestic abuse and sexual violence support services 
  • £3.75m of funding for 100 additional ISVA/IDVA posts

PCC Jonathan Evison said “This funding shows a firm commitment and opportunity to bring together the reforms in the Government's Rape Review Report and offers a significant opportunity to bring resilience to this support sector. Furthermore this gives us an opportunity to redesign how support is delivered and funded to make sure it meets the needs of all victims in the most effective way”.
