Gender Equality and Violence Against Women Team Funding 2012-2015
The VAW funding stream assists in the development of measures to tackle all forms of violence against women. These include projects which deliver frontline services or build capacity in local partnerships to strengthen responses to violence against women.
The Children Services fund is to resource staff to deliver direct therapeutic support to children and young people in refuge, leaving refuge and in outreach settings, thereby ensuring that as many children and young people as possible can access high quality, timely and appropriate services. This funding is looking to provide a wider range of options for children and young people affected by domestic abuse, many of whom do not have contact with Women’s Aid, or may live in an area without a Women’s Aid group. Funding was allocated for 3 years in April 2012. Applicants used this application form and the assosiated guidance to apply.
The Rape Crisis Specific Fund is to ensure that rape crisis services can be provided, even if other funding ceases.
