Women's group urged to snap up grants 25.01.08

A VITAL service for victims of domestic abuse in Inishowen is being urged to snap up funding before the cut-off point at the end of January.
Inishowen Women’s Outreach based in Carndonagh provides victims of domestic and other crime with support, comfort and information.
Funding of €1.33m is currently available from the Commission for the Support of Victims of Crime but applications from crime support groups must be received by January 31.
Moville-based Senator Cecilia Keaveney said eligible groups were those providing support measures to victims of sexual violence, domestic violence, human trafficking and crime in general.
Organisations that benefited last year include the Rape Crisis Network, Crime Victims Helpline, One in Four, Ruhama, Support After Crime, Support after Homicide, and the Federation for Victim Assistance.
“There are so many organisations, particularly the Rape Crisis Network, the Donegal Women’s Refuge and the Inishowen Women’s Outreach that provide invaluable support to victims of crime in Donegal. They are worthy of every assistance the Government can give them," said Senator Keaveney.
The Commission was established by the Government in 2005 in an attempt to strengthen the supports available to victims of crime and ensure they are treated with the dignity and respect they are entitled to.
