Answer for GLA funding for male rape charities

Answered By: 
The Mayor

MOPAC is investing over £4.1million in specialist services for all victims of rape and sexual assault by 2016.  I am determined to give victims of these awful crimes the best possible chance to cope and recover from their experiences. 

In line with MOPAC's approach to victims' commissioning, which seeks to complement other funding streams and avoid duplication, this is in addition to £52,666 that has specifically been granted to male rape/sexual assault charities by MOPAC and more than £1m that has been granted by the Ministry of Justice nationally to charities who provide support to these victims.
