EFFORTS to tackle sexual violence on the Isle of Wight have had a boost thanks to the Hampshire and Isle of Wight Police and Crime Commissioner Simon Hayes.
The Hampton Trust, which helps children, families and individuals facing challenging times has been awarded £5,000 to pay for an independent sexual violence advocate.
The trust was one of seven projects across Hampshire and the Island sharing a pot of £31,475.
The projects are all aimed at reducing crime and preventing re-offending.

When I was a lad the churches did a lot to instil moral values with youth clubs and other such activities run in the church halls by the vicar and members of the church. They were not religion driven so they were totally acceptable by us youngsters. I may be wrong, but I don't see anything much like that these days. Church halsl seem to be used only for Womens' Institute etc meetings. - Come on vicars - lead the way

Best way of preventing re-offending - don't let the perpetrators of sexual violence & attacks out again in the first place
