Reading: Centre For Rape Victims
Heart's being told Reading is one of 4 areas getting a share of £4million to help rape victims.
The government money's being given after campaigns to stop people affected having to travel to Slough or Milton Keynes
Victims' Minister Helen Grant said:
"I want more victims of rape or sexual assault to come forward and get the specialist help they need to recover from these sickening crimes. That's why we've ensured nearly £4million to support rape support centres over the next year.
"With one in 20 women reporting they were the victim of a serious sexual offence last year, it is so important we don't leave them to suffer in silence. That's why I'm pleased to announce another tranche of brand new centres that will help victims in places where there aren't the specialist services needed.
"For the first time Government is giving organisations who do so much, previously with so little, the long-term funding needed to put them on a more secure footing - a key pillar of our plan to tackle the appalling legacy of violence against women and girls."
The centre announced today will be open within the year.
It's hoped a new app, showing where the nearest automatic defibrillator is across the Thames Valley will help save lives.
