Support to adult survivors of non-recent childhood sexual abuse which took place in institutional care 2017-8

In response to the police operations into childhood sexual abuse in children's homes, the City and County Councils, CCGs and the Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner (OPCC), under the umbrella of the safeguarding boards, formed a Senior Management Group (SMG) and developed a Historical Child Abuse Victim/Survivor Support Strategy. The Strategy has three key objectives, one of which is to ensure that services meet the needs of victims/survivors. To deliver the strategy, the PCC, City and County Councils each agreed £33,333 for 2017-8 and 2018-9 (£100k pa in total) to be used to jointly fund a new Survivor Support Service and a strategic engagement post.

During 2017 the PCC will co-commission new paediatric and adult Sexual Assault Referral Centres (SARC) with NHS England, and is in discussion with Nottinghamshire County Council and county clinical commissioning groups to co-commission a new adult specialist sexual violence support service. In addition, the PCC is working with the City and County Councils to put specialist, dedicated support in place for adult survivors of abuse which took place whilst they were in institutional care such as children's homes ("historical institutional abuse").
Whilst some research into the needs of survivors has already been conducted by the PCC and others, the PCC wishes to commission independent research.

Extension of funding for Sexual Assault Referral Centre (SARC), sexual violence support services and Childhood Sexual Abuse support services in Nottinghamshire 2017-18

The PCC has a responsibility to commission services for victims of crime, and to prioritise the victims of the most serious crime.

Victims (survivors) of sexual violence require a range of help to cope and recover from crime, including crisis support, help through the criminal justice system, counselling and peer support.

The PCC is working with partners to co-commission sexual violence support services. In order to ensure time for procurement, and no loss of support to providers, the PCC is requested to approve funding to ensure services are extended for one more year.
