Procurement of specialist therapeutic support for victims and survivors of sexual violence and abuse

The PCC is asked to approve the procurement of a specialist therapeutic support service for victims and survivors of sexual violence and abuse.

The support will be funded by NHS England/Improvement (NHSE/I), following the PCC's earlier successful bid to NHSE/l's High Volume Fund.

Joint FHQ New Build

The 2019-24 Capital Programme which was presented at the Police and Crime Panel meeting on 7th February 2019 and subsequently approved by the Police Crime Commissioner on a decision record. This approved a budget for the Joint FHQ New Build to the value of £0.352m in 2019-20 and future years budget of £14.474. The original budget was assumed net of Fire contribution, with a revised budget being recommended at FEB in February 2019 of £18.5m. The budget will be re-phased to this level in the 2020-25 Capital Programme. Due to the lower original budget being set and the momentum of speed that the project is gathering it is requested that £900k of the budget allocated for future years is brought forward to 2019-20 to off-set ground works and other preliminary charges.
