Recovery charities across Nottinghamshire are to share more than £584k as part of an emergency fund to support victims of violence throughout the pandemic.
Nottinghamshire Police and Crime Commissioner Paddy Tipping applied to the Ministry of Justice (MoJ) for urgent funding to help domestic abuse and sexual violence support services cope with soaring demand during the coronavirus.
Acknowledging the immense strain on providers, the PCC said it was imperative every victim needing help received it and that there were no barriers to recovery during the lockdown.
