I commission work with survivors

Local public sector commissioners for domestic violence services are facing perhaps the most difficult decisions of recent times, as they themselves face severe cutbacks. Women’s Aid have worked on a few tools to help, which you can access below.

Working with Commissioners

Through the Sustainability Partnership, Women’s Aid and Imkaan have created a free guide, designed to support public sector staff responsible for commissioning services for women and children experiencing and fleeing domestic violence.

Shared Core Standards

The VAWG Sector Sustainability Working Group, comprising Imkaan, Rape Crisis England & Wales, Respect, SafeLives and Women’s Aid, have a set of Shared Core Standards. The purpose of these standards is to enable joint commissioning across specialist services in the VAWG sector, both nationally and locally.

VAWG Commissioner’s Toolkit

The Home Office have published a Commissioner’s Toolkit with contributions from Women’s Aid, Rape Crisis England & Wales, SafeLives, Respect, EVAW and Galop, supported by Lloyds Bank Foundation for England & Wales. You can find the toolkit here.
