2020/21 Recovery Fund
A Covid-19 Recovery Fund was launched in 2020 by Warwickshire Police and Crime Commissioner Philip Seccombe to help provide an additional cash boost to organisations working to improve community safety and help the most vulnerable.
It came as many across the charitable and voluntary sector have been faced with a double hit of reduced or curtailed opportunities to raise money while also needing to fund technology to support home-working or to meet increased demand for their support.
Applications for bids for grants of up to £5,000 or donations of £1,000 were opened in June 2020 and more than £50,000 was awarded to a range of groups across Warwickshire.

COVID-19 funding for domestic abuse and sexual violence support services
Charities and other organisations supporting victims of domestic abuse and sexual violence benefited from more than £218,000 in emergency funding in 2020.
It follows a bidding process organised by the Commissioner’s office to allocate Warwickshire’s portion of national emergency funding made available by the Ministry of Justice (MoJ).
The grants helped meet the additional costs registered charities or social enterprise incurred while adapting their services during the pandemic and to meet the additional demand for help from victims which was expected to occur as lockdown restrictions were eased and people were more readily able to ask for help.
Six bids for funding were judged to have met the MoJ’s criteria and have been awarded funding as follows:
- £35,030 – Family Intervention Counselling Service (domestic abuse services funding)
- £58,919 – Refuge (domestic abuse services funding)
- £48,000 – Insight Services (Formerly DACS) (domestic abuse services funding)
- £11,359 – Parenting Project (domestic abuse services funding)
- £28,930 – RoSA (sexual violence services funding)
- £35,926 – Safeline (sexual violence services funding).
The funding is to cover the period from the beginning of lockdown on 24 March through to 31 October 2020.
