The voluntary organisation I am involved with received this. It's not an issue we deal with; maybe it is of use to the local community:
Dear Colleague

The London Community Foundation is delighted to launch The MOPAC Victims Fund to benefit victims of crime across London. The aim of the Fund is to build the capacity and maximise the potential of voluntary, community and social enterprise (VCSE) organisations to help ensure the continued and improved provision of vital services to support victims of crime and help them cope and recover. The Fund is managed by The London Community Foundation on behalf of MOPAC (The Mayor's Office for Policing And Crime) and is open to proposals for work taking place in London only.

Grants of between £10,000 and £20,000 are available to organisations providing support to victims of crime to help them cope and recover. Partnerships of three or more organisations applying together can receive up to £80,000.

Grants are available to cover any costs relating to work which builds the capacity and maximises the potential of organisations working to support victims of crime. This could include, but is not limited to:
•improving management
•assistance with fundraising
•recruiting and training volunteers
•increasing technical skills through training
•changing operating procedures
•restructuring within an organisation, thereby making it more effective and sustainable
