Local commissioning of Victim Referral Mechanisms via a Victim Hub

12 March 14

Decision:

Local commissioning of Victim Referral Mechanisms via a Victim Hub

Decision Summary:

To agree to move out of Ministry of Justice national funding arrangements with Victim Support for the provision of victim referral mechanisms to local commissioning from October 2014 in an ‘early adopter’ capacity. It is recognised that in order to move forward the support of the Ministry of Justice is needed to:

  • Ensure any calls to Victim Support are appropriately responded to or redirected to local services.
  • Maintain existing arrangements with Victim Support to meet the needs of Action Fraud and British Transport Police victims who reside in Cambridgeshire.
  • Work with other hubs to ensure secure communication mechanisms either through Victim Support or existing Police networks

Promote negotiations between Victim Support and Cambridgeshire OPCC to enable existing Victim Support volunteers to integrate with the hub.
