£78,246 of funding was awarded to Migdal Emunah through Greater Manchester’s additional funding bid to the MoJ in 2022. This is the amount over 3 years and is for the delivery of a Reducing Harm caused by sexual abuse workstream across Greater Manchester. This requires working with a variety of organisations within the sexual violence support sector.

Following initial scoping of this the requirement for additional administrative support to enable delivery of this was identified. It is felt this request is reasonable and will support GM priorities around sexual violence to be delivered and fulfilled.

The funding agreed is subject to a grant agreement and appropriate oversight and monitoring is in place.

An outline of the project is below:

• Year one – to hear the voices from the various communities in Greater Manchester and collate the themes/issues which are most important to our communities. To report on these as collective themes/issues and also highlight some of the individual community challenges by the end of year one.
• Year two – to identify the top 3-5 issues across our communities with some key actions and ideas for reducing harm in these areas.
• Year three – to produce a full report of all the main themes and issues across all communities, including specific issues pertaining to individual communities, and suggested solutions for reducing harm in each of these areas.
This is a one off funding contribution to support the initial stages of the project.


£4875 be awarded to Migdal Emunah to support them leading of the delivery of Reducing Harm caused by Sexual Abuse workstream – on behalf of the GMCA.

This is based on an estimated cost of £16 per hour 2 days per week, including Employers NI contribution (putting someone on payroll). This is based on 5 months which is roughly £975 per month.
