Security for Place of Worship
Government funding for rape and sexual abuse victims just not enough, says Chair of APPG on Sexual Violence.
I was a signatory this week to a letter to the Home Secretary regarding funding for security at places of worship.
The appalling terrorist attack in Christchurch has understandably left many Muslims concerned about security, particularly as we approach Ramadan.
I was pleased that the Home Secretary has announced additional funding for security at places of worship. It is vital that this funding is released as a matter of urgency and that applications are kept as simple and as clear as possible.
