A new fund for projects which support victims of crime has been launched by Cheshire’s police and crime commissioner.

The fund has been set up following the completion of a needs assessment by the PCC’s office, which identified specific areas requiring further investment to ensure the right support is available to help victims of crime.

Through the Supporting Victims Fund, £160,000 is available for projects that specifically support victims under the age of 18, victims with mental health issues, victims at risk of exploitation or victims of hate crime.

£40,000 is available for each priority area; this may be allocated to one project in full or shared between multiple projects which support that particular priority.
