Police and Crime Commissioner Sue Mountstevens, pictured, said: “I have set out a clear vision for victims of crime in Avon and Somerset which involves a joined-up approach to services for victims and has the voice of victims at its heart.
“This new funding from the Ministry of Justice will help us on that journey within Avon and Somerset.
“We are working on a pioneering new approach to transform services for victims of crime.
