Answer for Rape crisis centres

Answered By: 
The Mayor

I have secured both revenue and capital commitments from Ealing Council for the new West London Rape Crisis Centre.

Ealing Council has specifically committed to provide a location (and relevant capital costs) to locate the new Rape Crisis Centre and additional revenue funding to cover the running costs. In addition, Ealing Council has allocated significant resources by way of officer time to project manage and develop the new service. Ealing officers have worked closely with the Rape Crisis, England and Wales network to ensure that they develop a service that will meet the Rape Crisis national service standards.

Ealing Council will be able to make more information available following their Cabinet discussions on 1 December 2009.
