Hidden Harm Summit – APCC Chair response
“Today’s summit gave us all an important opportunity to affirm our commitment to shining a light on hidden harms and do everything we can, in these unprecedented circumstances, to protect our most vulnerable.
“Utilising the new funding streams available, Police and Crime Commissioners are working closely with Government, policing partners, local charities and victim support services to find innovative ways to reach out to those who need help and ensure effective enforcement is in place.
“There is much strong, proactive work happening and we are all committed to supporting those most at risk. Nobody should feel alone or that they have to suffer in silence. I know that we will all continue to work collaboratively to drive forward real action that will support victims of crime."
