Hampshire Police and Crime Commissioner, Simon Hayes, has announced new grant awards totalling £248,542 to organisations across Hampshire and the Isle of Wight helping victims of violent or sexual crime.
Simon Hayes comments, “Placing victims and witnesses at the heart of policing and the wider criminal justice system is one of the key priorities in my Police and Crime Plan. My grants will invest in both new and existing schemes, which help victims of violent or sexual crime. I am proud to support a range of projects including specialist Independent Domestic Violence Advocates in Southampton and Portsmouth; a dedicated hub addressing child sexual exploitation; and support and advocacy services for victims of sexual crimes throughout Hampshire.
