Victim Services Recommissioning

The OPCC has commissioned services for victims of crime and Anti-Social Behaviour (ASB) across Avon and Somerset since April 2015.

Around £2m per annum is spent by the PCC on core local support services to help victims cope with, and as far as possible recover from the effects of crime or ASB. The current contracts for core services run to March 2025.

The tender for the following services due to commence in April 2025 has now closed:

  • Children and Young Victims of Crime and ASB Support Service
  • Adult Victims of Crime and ASB Support Service
  • All Age Independent Sexual Violence Advisor (ISVA) Service

The outcome of this procurement process will be communicated according to the draft timetable in the Commissioning Plan below.

Plans for the OPCC’s Modern Slavery Pathways contribution will be published in due course.
