Following the announcement by Norfolk Police and Crime Commissioner, Stephen Bett, of the recipients of the Child & Adult Victim Sexual Abuse Support Fund 2015/16; Survivors Manchester is delighted to be able reveal that we have been awarded £62,000.
In Mr Bett’s announcement, he stated that

In total 299 bids were received and just under £22million of funding was requested. Therefore the standard of applications and competition for funding were very high. Each bid has been subjected to a thorough and robust assessment in line with the published criteria and I am delighted to now be in a position to announce the successful applications.

We would like to congratulate all recipient organisations doing amazing work to help male and female survivors, young and old at such a difficult period in time.
Survivors Manchester Chief Executive, Duncan Craig, said:

I am so pleased to find out that we have been awarded this money. 2015 is already shaping up to be a very busy year and we want to make sure that we can provide support to boys and men within weeks of them asking for it, rather than months. Now the National Inquiry has a new head, it will no doubt commence again and with all the high profile news stories, it will no doubt result in more people asking for help. This money will increase our workforce, the support for the staff and mean we can commence with the second Male Survivors Psychotherapy Group, in September 2015
