Derbyshire PCC procures victim support contract for domestic abuse

Service to be offered to all genders aged 16 and over and their families

Refuge has been awarded a contract worth £583.5k to deliver domestic abuse services over the next three years in Derby following a competitive tender process.

The outreach service will deliver support to help victims of standard or medium risk domestic abuse cope and recover from their experiences.

It also aims to protect them and their families from further harm and prevent the escalation of abuse as well as reduce the risk of domestic-related homicide. 

Derbyshire PCC Angelique Foster who awarded the contract said the service will be offered to victims/survivors of all genders aged 16 and over and their families, although their children will also be supported.

Support will be holistic and community-based and there will be an option of extending the contract for a further two years at the end of the funding period.

The service will include:

Refuge will work closely with key partner agencies such as the Police, Children and Adults Social Care, acute and primary health services, mental health services, substance misuse services, housing and refuge providers, sexual abuse support services and other voluntary and community sector providers.

A separately contracted service for high-risk victims of domestic abuse will be delivered in Derby City.
