In December 2014, the Government committed an additional £7m dedicated to supporting victims of childhood sexual abuse (CSA). £2.15m has been given to the 84 rape support centres funded by the Female Rape Support Fund 2014-16 to ensure more victims are able to access support. In addition, over £1 million has been awarded to twelve organisations over two years to provide face-to-face and internet-based support for Male rape victims. The remaining £4.85m is being used by the Home Office to commission support such as counselling for victims of CSA during 2015.
