Minister Paul Kehoe, has urged local organisations in Wexford who are working with victims of crime to apply for the 2017 Victims of Crime Funding Scheme.

“The work that these organisations do, here in Wexford and across the country, helps to reduce the trauma experienced by victims of crime and helps them to move on with their lives. I am proud to support their invaluable efforts.

“This funding increase will assist community and voluntary organisations here in Wexford in meeting the additional demands for support services, such as the provision of information on the rights of victims and court accompaniment.

“The Tánaiste secured an additional €250,000 in funding for 2017 over and above the 2016 allocation, bringing the total funding available in 2017 to €1.712m.
