Humberside Police and Crime Commissioner Matthew Grove has secured £137,000 of Government funding to provide support for child victims of sexual abuse in East Yorkshire and Northern Lincolnshire.

The Commissioner submitted a bid to the Ministry of Justice Victims Fund to enable four advisors to be employed over the next year, one in each Local Authority area covered by Humberside Police. There are already four advisors working with adult victims, one of whom is funded by Matthew, but there was an identified gap in provision for children.

All the new advisors will be experts in sexual offences and the Criminal Justice System.
