£4 million additional funding over two years has been placed in the Victims Fund to support the development of services for victims of sexual offending in England and Wales. Of the 47 organisations that were awarded grant funding in the 2004–05 financial year, one organisation was based in Croydon. That organisation received £27,080. The same organisation was one of 61 organisations that successfully applied for funding in the 2005–06 financial year and was awarded an individual grant of £40,000.

The amount of funding in total and per head of population in (a) England and Wales and (b) Croydon, based on census 2001 data for those areas is shown in the table:
