Hand out will fund domestic violence worker.
The area's Community Safety Partnership has been given the money by the government office for the East Midlands to fund a domestic violence co-ordinator until March 2006.
The partnership advertised the position last week and already has in place a part-time temporary administrator until the co-ordinator is appointed.
The new worker will be based at an emergency centre currently under construction in the Wykin area of Hinckley.
Community co-ordinator for area Mary Johnson said: "It can only be good news for the victims out there."
The centre is due to accept its first residents from the middle of April.
