Victims of domestic abuse in Greater Manchester are being reminded that support is still available and those at risk of harm can still leave their homes under the latest coronavirus lockdown rules.
Last month, emergency funding was allocated to charities in the city-region that support victims and survivors of domestic abuse and sexual violence to adapt their services while the pandemic continues.
A total of £571,196 was allocated to 26 organisations by the Ministry of Justice (MoJ), which will enable them to adapt services and improve digital capabilities for remote working.
The money will enable the charities to provide more counselling for vulnerable victims and hire additional staff to cope with increased demand. They will also be able to make their organisations ‘Covid Secure’ and provide PPE to staff.
The funding has been allocated to the charities via Greater Manchester Combined Authority (GMCA) after it submitted bids to government for the funding.
