HC Deb 28 November 1985 vol 87 c613W
Mr. Alton

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department what support Her Majesty's Government have given in 1985 to the National Association of Victims Support Schemes and local victims of violence schemes.

Mr. Mellor

In the current financial year, the Government are making a grant of £120,000 to the National Association of Victims Support Schemes, and in addition providing £6,000 towards the cost of the association's move to new premises. There is no provision for direct grants from the Government to local victims support schemes, but a number are receiving assistance from the Government via the urban programme, the DHSS "Opportunities for Volunteering" scheme and Manpower Services Commission programmes.
