Apply for the Victims' Fund

The West Midlands Police and Crime Commissioner is urging organisations that support victims of crime to apply to him to run services in the West Midlands.

The PCC, David Jamieson, will commission victim services for areas, such as, domestic violence, sexual abuse, volume crime, child sexual exploitation, female genital mutilation, forced marriage and honour based violence, hate crime, fatal road traffic collisions and modern slavery. The allocated funding now also includes restorative justice services.

Services commissioned by the PCC will form part of a varied network of support that exists for victims across the West Midlands, funded by other commissioners and through charitable donation.

This year's victims' fund has £200,000 available to help people traumatised by criminal activity. Individual funding of up to £20,000 is available for each voluntary or community organisation that helps people to cope and recover. Groups can apply on their own or they can join together to form a partnership.

The deadline for applications is 5pm on 18th March 2019.
