The south west's five police and crime commissioners are inviting potential providers and stakeholders to a regional event at Somerset County Cricket Club in Taunton where they will outline the future of commissioning victims' services.
In the south west, some PCC areas are following a different commissioning timescale than others.
Some areas are early adopters which means the new service will be operational from 1 October 2014, while others will be providing a new service from 1 April 2015.
However, it is important that stakeholders, partners and providers in all areas are kept informed about commissioning intentions and any potential opportunities.
The PCC’s are keen to engage voluntary and community sector potential providers and specialist providers in the event which will inform providers of the commissioning of victim services across the south west; test the capacity and interest of the provider market; map services; help facilitate partnership working through networking at the event.
The event will include a presentation on the national and local context by a Ministry of Justice representative.
This will be followed by a panel of commissioning managers from the offices of police and crime commissioners who will provide an update on their commissioning timetables and intentions.
There will also be workshops to identify the needs of victims and opportunities for partnership working.
