Covid-19 Extraordinary Funding for Domestic Abuse and Sexual Violence Services - bidding deadline 2nd June

Many of you will have picked up  that the Ministry of Justice launched 'Covid-19 Extraordinary Funding for Domestic Abuse and Sexual Violence Services'.  This means a potential extra £494,000 to support services in Northumbria to help maintain support to vulnerable victims during this very challenging time.  


“Some rise in reports of domestic abuse during lockdown in rural areas and concerns over those unable to escape potentially abusive situations during lockdown.”

That’s the message coming from Graham Biggs, the CX of the Rural Services Network following a survey of member organisations about the impact of covid-19 and lockdown on incidences of domestic abuse and homelessness during April and May. 

WRC Statement on Racism and the Global Movement for Change

To be a feminist, you must be anti-racist. Liberation for only some, is not liberation.

The events of the past few weeks following the murder of George Floyd by four Minneapolis police officers have sparked an unprecedented global uprising against racism and collective demand to defund the police and fund our communities.

At WRC, we are committed to feminism and anti-racism being at the heart of everything we do.
