NSDP allocated provincial funding for two programs around crime prevention

The Northern Society for Domestic Peace (NSDP) is receiving provincial funding for two programs. 

189 projects across the province working to advance community safety, address gender-based violence and support Indigenous healing are receiving funding. 

$40,000 is going to their Domestic Peace Program which offers counseling services to adult clients who use, or are at risk of using, violence in their relationships. 

Also receiving the same figure is their Indigenous Focusing Oriented Therapy program. 

“Everyone deserves to live in a community that is safe, healthy and secure,” said Mike Farnworth, Minister of Public Safety and Solicitor General. 

“That means addressing the root causes of crime and making sure victims of crime have the supports they need to thrive again. By redirecting funds from forfeited assets into community organizations and crime prevention projects, we are working toward safer and stronger communities for all British Columbians.” 

In total, the province is providing $8.2 million to programs across the province.
