Victim Support Schemes

Volume 491: debated on Thursday 30 April 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Justice when he plans to announce arrangements for the Victims' Fund for 2009-10. (271719)

£1.25 million has been allocated to the Victims Fund for Sexual Violence for 2009-10. We have written to organisations that were successful in securing a grant in the 2007-08 and 2008-09 application process informing them that they are eligible to have their grants renewed at the same level as in the previous two years. The Home Office administered funds for victims of homicide and hate crime will be announced in the next few weeks.
