Our Funders

We are fortunate to receive the majority of our funding from the Northumbria Police and Crime Commissioner, but are always looking to secure additional funding to ensure all victims of crime receive an enhanced service and to ensure the future growth and sustainability of the charity.

Even small offers of support can help us pilot new ideas or continue providing the services we do, ensuring continuty and an excellent service to victims of crime.

We were absolutley delighted to recieve funding from the Peoples Postcode Trust and the players of the lottery to fund an Outreach Worker who will provide support and raise awareness of hate crime across the region. Attending events and being a specific point of contact and link between the communities suceptible to hate crime. We are incredibly grateful for this funding and look forward to expanding our work in this area.

We were recently delighted to have been awarded funding from the Hospital of God at Greatham to fund our work in providing Restorative Justice across the region in particular to victims of hate crime. This work will allow us to offer victims of hate crime a voice, help them to move forward positivley and find a sense of closure, as well as having a positive effect on future offending.

Recently The Newcastle Building Society through the Community Foundation were generous enough to provide us with funding to enhance our services to victims of Sexual Violence. This is incredibly important work and we are delighted to be able to carry this out by way of the grant we were given.

We are incredibly grateful to the Joicey Trust for complimenting our new funded Hate Crime Outreach Worker post with funding to produce a series of Hate Crime videos – using stories from people with Lived Experience to promote the message of hate crime and to help educate and raise awareness with others.

In 2018 we were very grateful to recieve funding from the Sir Jules Thorn Trust/Ann Rylands Trust to fund an Interactive Courtroom facility for our website. This easy to use resource was created with ease of use in mind primarily for younger victims of crime but for anyone struggling to understand the often confusing process with an aim to improving court attendance and the victim journey. You can find this Interactive Courtroom here.
