New Fund will help victims, says Alun
Thursday, March 3rd, 2016
I’m pleased to have been able to announce the launch of a new Victims Fund for South Wales. It’s in addition to the support that is already provided directly by Victim Support, which I already finance.
The fund aims to build capacity and maximise the potential of organisations to deliver services supporting victims of crime across South Wales, helping people to cope and to recover from their experiences.
Open to the voluntary and community sector, the fund can support new or existing projects that work with individuals and their family members who have been affected by crime. We are also looking for innovative ideas of projects that would complement existing support services for victims.
Local community organisations and voluntary groups based in the South Wales Police force area can apply for funding if they are delivering – or proposing to deliver – specialist services focused on helping victims and their family members cope and recover from the impact of crime.
The fund is managed by Community Foundation in Wales and is open to receive applications from 29th February 2016 with the closing date for applications being 13th April 2016.
Further information about the fund along with the application form and guidance documents are available on the Community Foundation in Wales website.
