Funding to help crime victims

STRUGGLING community-based organisations will receive more than $2 million extra funding to help crime victims.

Attorney-General Jarrod Bleijie said the money would go towards increasing frontline services targeting the recovery and support of victims of crime.

He said the money would also expand the capacity to respond to growing, emerging or developing needs of these victims.

"These organisations work tirelessly to help victims overcome devastating circumstances to get their lives back and contribute once again in their local community," he said.

The government will make $500,000 available each year until June 2016, and take individual submissions for up to $200,000 a year for up to four years.

Organisations must submit applications by 4pm on October 19.

There will be an information session on September 27 to give organisations an opportunity to ask questions about the submission process.
