Five charities in Oxfordshire have been given more than £145,000 in funding to help develop services for victims of crime.

They are: Oxford Sexual Abuse and Rape Crisis Centre, Refugee Resource, Reducing the Risk, Circles South East in Didcot and Sunrise Multicultural in Banbury.

The money was awarded by the Thames Valley Police and Crime Commissioner Anthony Stansfeld from the Victims of Crime and Restorative Justice Grant.

Mr Stansfeld said: “This has been an important first step in the process of identifying where there are gaps in services to support victims of crime.”
