Funding for Independent Sexual Violence and Domestic Violence Advocates
20 May 2021
On 20 May Donna Jones was in Southampton to discuss funding to benefit victims and survivors of domestic abuse and sexual violence in Hampshire and the Isle of Wight. They will have access to enhanced levels of support following a successful bid to central government for additional resources.
The award is worth a potential £1.5 million over two years, and will fund an extra 19 specially trained staff to support the most vulnerable victims in the county, including support for children and young people.
