We are committed to ensuring that victims of crime are fully supported and are making more money available than ever before for victims’ services. Under this Government funding for support services has more than doubled from £40.52million in 2009/10 to over £92 million in 2015/16, including an increase in local budgets to fund vital services on the ground.
The following table shows the funding that the MoJ has provided to organisations supporting victims of crime since April 2010.
Total funding to victim’s services (1)
1) Figures for 2011-12 onwards include income from the Prisoners’ Earnings Act.
2) The figure for 2014/15 is forecast only and therefore likely to change at the end of the financial year. This does not include the £4.85m transfer of funds to the Home Office for support for victims of Child Sexual Exploitation.
