Short Update: UK Ministry of Justice announces £22 million emergency coronavirus funding for more than 540 sexual violence and domestic abuse charities

FT Admin - June 30, 2020 - COVID-19 Updates

On 26 June 2020, the Ministry of Justice announced that it would provide £22 million coronavirus funding for 548 sexual violence and domestic abuse charities across England and Wales. The funding would allow the charities to employ more staff and purchase software and other technology equipment that are needed to stay in touch with victims, such as video conferencing tools. 

The £22 million funding is part of the £76 million emergency funding announced by the government in May to ensure that victims can continue to access support. Charities supporting sexual violence and domestic abuse survivors should request funding directly from the Ministry of Justice or from their local Police and Crime Commissioner and are required to provide evidence of the services they would deliver.
