Police receive funding to tackle domestic abuse
The Home Office has awarded £11.3 million to 25 police and crime commissioners in England and Wales, to go towards domestic abuse intervention programmes to prevent domestic abuse. This is in addition to appointing a domestic abuse commissioner and providing more than £28 million to domestic abuse organisations.
Approximately £5.6m of this will go towards general perpetrator interventions, £3m for child and adolescent perpetrator interventions, and £2.7m for stalking interventions. The funding, which was announced on 11 August, builds on work already taking place to tackle domestic abuse.
