Grant to help relatives of murder victims

Daily Echo: Grant to help relatives of murder victims Grant to help relatives of murder victims

A CHARITY aimed at helping people whose loved ones have been murdered has now received national funding.

Escaping Victimhood, based in Winchester, has been given £301,000 over the next three years from the Reaching Communities Fund at the Big Lottery to help them support people who have indirectly fallen victim to crime.

Director Debra Clothier said: “This will enable us to develop our programmes so all those who have lost a loved one through murder or manslaughter can have the opportunity to attend the Escaping Victimhood Programme if they wish, and to give them the opportunity for a more positive future following their bereavement.”

The charity aims to help victims through a specialist programme that brings people together in groups of 12 to work through their problems away from their normal environment.
