2022/23 Ministry of Justice Funding for Support Services for victims of Domestic Violence or Sexual Violence

During 2022/23, the Ministry of Justice has confirmed that Police and Crime Commissioners (PCCs) across England and Wales will be able to bid for an additional £15.7 million for services supporting those who have experienced domestic abuse (DA) or sexual violence (SV) and a further £3.75 million for Independent Sexual and Domestic Violence Advisory roles.

 

For the first time, this funding will be delivered on a multi-year basis until the end of 2024/25.

 

In order to access this funding, PCCs are required to complete needs assessments to provide the MOJ with an up to date picture of local need. This includes:

  • the allocation of funding for the DA/SV ringfenced funding. The assessment should cover needs for 22/23 and any allocation of funding will be made on a multi-year basis.
  • the allocation of funding for an additional 100 ISVAs and IDVAs posts to be recruited in 22/23. Where posts are recruited in 22/23, funding will be guaranteed in 23/24 and 24/25.

 

Organisations do not need to be a registered charity, a charitable incorporated organisation, or a social enterprise to be eligible for this funding. They must, however, provide support services which have the purpose of helping victims of SV or DA cope with the impacts of crime, and, as far as possible, recover from the harm they have experienced.

 

This week, the government have shared with PCCs the details of these funds and the guidelines.

 

Detailed guidance is available below. If you wish to submit a request for this funding, please use the template provided and return to the Office via the below email by close of play on Friday 29th April 2022.

 

Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any queries or wish to discuss the funding available. Please contact Alison Perry, Director of Commissioning and Partnerships, via OPCC@dyfed-powys.police.uk
