A pilot for a whole family response to domestic abuse in Norwich

15th February 2018

Every survivor of domestic abuse, and their family, deserves the right response at the right time, to make them safe, sooner. That’s why Norfolk is working with national domestic abuse charity SafeLives, who is developing new interventions and ways of working that fill the gaps in the response to domestic abuse.

The interventions have been defined and developed with sector-leading domestic abuse services and will address five major gaps identified in the UK’s overall response to domestic abuse.

Help us to pilot the delivery of these new interventions in Norwich so survivors and their families receive the right support to make them safe, sooner.

SafeLives and members of Norfolk’s County Community Safety Partnership (Norfolk Constabulary, Office of Police and Crime Commissioner for Norfolk, Norfolk Children’s Services, Norfolk Adult Services, Norfolk Public Health and Norwich City Council) are working together to develop, fund and trial a new approach. Tenders are invited from any not for profit, voluntary sector or charitable organisation, or consortium of such to deliver new domestic abuse interventions in Norwich. Where bidders are looking to form a consortium a public sector organisation cannot form more than 50% of the consortium.

The total award for the contract is a maximum of £1.6m for a three year period. The project will be commissioned from April 2018 with an expectation to begin delivery in July 2018 and continue until June 2021.

The deadline for tender submissions is 23rd March 2018, with interviews to be held the week commencing 9th April 2018.
