PCC supports Waveney Domestic Violence Forum

The PCC attended the Waveney Domestic Violence Forum AGM this morning (November 28) with Baroness Newlove, the Victims Commissioner.

At the meeting Tim announced that he has allocated £12k from his Crime and Disorder Fund to keep the forum going for 12 months from next January when their funding from other sources runs out. The money is specifically for providing the coordinator role.

Speaking directly after the meeting Tim said, “The work being carried out by this committed group of people is absolutely inspiring. They have told me of some horrendous and upsetting examples, and sadly they happen all too frequently.

“I am very pleased to support this crucial  work in Lowestoft and am pleased to make the announcement of the funding particularly during White Ribbon week, Behaviour like this is utterly appalling and completely unacceptable”
