From 1 October 2014, funding for victims of crime transferred to Police and Crime Commissioners from the Ministry of Justice (MOJ)
In advance of this responsibility, the PCC commissioned a review: Victims Services within Cleveland.
One of the recommendations was that the PCC continues to fund areas that were previously funded by the MOJ, but for which the funding has now passed to the PCC, until 31 March 2015.
SPARC was one of these organisations. They propose to use £14,347 requested from the PCC to continue to provide the service that is summarised below:
- SPARC would provide increased engagement between Criminal Justice Agencies and the travelling communities.
- Engagement would be achieved by holding six Community Engagement Events and by hosting four awareness raising training sessions for criminal justice agencies
