Funding applications to help victims and survivors of domestic abuse and sexual violence

Applications close 24th February 2021

To request an application please email

Up to £426,893 is available to help victims and survivors of domestic abuse and sexual violence.

Charities, groups and organisations working to support those who have experienced these awful crimes can apply for money via the Police, Fire and Crime Commissioner for Essex.

Some of this funding will be used to provide support for under-represented survivors particularly those with protected characteristics who have been impacted by domestic abuse or sexual violence.

This funding will cover funding needs from 1st April 2021 to 31st March 2021.

To be eligible for the funding, organisations must be a registered charity, a charitable incorporated organisation, or a social enterprise, including companies limited by guarantee and community interest companies. They must provide support services supporting individuals/families with protected characteristics which have the purpose of helping victims of crime cope with the impacts of crime, and, as far as possible, recover from the harm they have experienced.

Applications will be assessed by the PFCC and be reviewed upon

  • A clear evidence of need/demand
  • A demonstration of the impact services have on supporting victims of crime
  • A clear understanding of how underrepresented victims, such as those with protected characteristics are currently supported
  • How your proposal will ensure proportional service provision for these groups

Please return your completed application to the Police, Fire and Crime Commissioner Essex by 24th February 2021. Applications received after this date can’t be accepted.
