Domestic Abuse and Sexual Violence funding opportunity 

This funding opportunity is now closed.

The Home Office have confirmed that £147m of funding will be committed, until the end of 2024/25 for victim services.


The money will fund emotional, practical, and therapeutic support for victims of crime such as women and girls affected by domestic abuse.

Funding allocation from the Ministry of Justice (MoJ) is broken down as follows:

  • 27m ring-fenced funding to maintain the Sexual Violence Advisors (ISVAs) and Independent Domestic Violence Advisors (IDVAs) funded in 2021/22 until the end of 2024/25.
  • £3.75m per annum to recruit an additional 300 ISVA/IDVA posts by 2024/25 with the aim of recruiting an additional 100 ISVA/IDVAs in 2022/23, taking the total from 700 to 1000.
  • £15.7m ringfenced funding for domestic abuse and sexual violence support services.
  • The additional funding from the MoJ means organisations can provide additional services to the ones already provided.
