The government is committed to making sure that victims of crime have access to a broad range of support services, to help them cope with and, as far as possible, recover from the effects of crime. In 2016/17 we spent about £96m to fund support services for victims of crime.

Just over £3.2m of this was allocated to Greater Manchester and about £64.4m was allocated to all Police and Crime Commissioners in England to locally commission or provide support services for victims of crime, including for victims of offences related to domestic abuse.

In 2016/17 Greater Manchester reported spending just under £0.7m on services to support victims of domestic abuse and Police and Crime Commissioners in England reported spending about £11.1m on services to support victims of domestic abuse.
