GOOD NEWS FOR VICTIMS OF DOMESTIC ABUSE IN LONDON

9 May, 2019

The Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan,  has brought forward £1.35 million of a £15m fund to help meet the urgent demand in high-risk domestic abuse cases and improve timely access to sexual violence support services.

It comes after four Rape Crisis Centres in the capital had to take the unusual step of closing their waiting lists early last year because they did not have the resources or capacity to offer support for victims.

Victim Support has now received £400,000 to help support victims of domestic abuse, while £760,000 has been invested in London’s four Rape Crisis Centres and a further £190,000 will fund Sexual Assault Referral Centre services in the capital.
