Two Coventry charities receive cash from victims fund

Coventry Editorial 26th Apr, 2023   0

TWO Coventry charities are among eight across the region to have been awarded a chunk of £150,000 to help victims of crime.

The Coventry Panahghar Project and the Coventry Rape and Sexual Abuse Centre (CRASAC) were successful in their applications to receive part of the police and crime commissioners victims fund.

The cash will be used to help those dealing with the impact criminal behaviour has had on their lives.

This year’s fund recipients were chosen to help them deal with the impact of the cost-of-living crisis.

The Coventry Panahghar Project will use its cash to provide tailor-made care packages for women and children, while CRASAC will use the funds to help with increasing running costs of their support services.

The West Midlands police and crime commissioner, Simon Foster said: “We received applications from several worthy groups, all of which are doing fantastic work across the region and narrowing the list down was a real challenge.

“The work being carried out by these organisations is absolutely vital and appreciated – and I am delighted to help support them in this way.”

Victims’ Commissioner, Nicky Brennan added: “The cost of living crisis has had an unbelievable impact on some of the most vital groups helping victims across the West Midlands.

“As my own domestic abuse cost-of-living report showed, support services are struggling to maintain their levels of support, with more women needing help and less money to go around.”
