New funding for Domestic abuse and sexual violence support

Posted on: April 21, 2022

The Domestic Abuse and Sexual Violence Fund has become available following an announcement from the Ministry of Justice (MoJ).

The MoJ confirmed that Police (Fire) & Crime Commissioners (PCCs/PFCCs) will receive £69.1 million ‘core’ funding, £27 million ringfenced funding to recruit and retain 700 Independent Sexual Violence Advisors (ISVAs) and Independent Domestic Violence Advisors (IDVAs) and £15.7 million ringfenced funding for domestic abuse (DA) and sexual violence (SV) support services.

On 25 March 2022, it was confirmed that this funding will be delivered over a multi-year basis until the end of 2024/25.

If you would like to apply for funding, you must complete a needs assessment form.  This application should cover:

The allocation of funding for the DA/SV community-based services.

The assessment should cover needs for 2022/23 with any allocation of funding being assessed for allocation on a multi-year basis.

The allocation of funding for an additional 100 ISVAs and IDVAs posts to be recruited nationally in 2022/23 (£3.75 million).

Where posts are recruited in 2022/23, funding will be assessed for allocation for 2023/24 and 2024/25.

Applications need to be returned to the PFCC on the template below no later than midday on 25 April 2022
