Government Fund for work with DA Perpetrators opens for PCC bids

The Drive Partnership – which is made up of Social Finance, Respect and SafeLives – welcomes the news that the Home Office has now opened the application process for PCCs in England and Wales to apply for grant funding to support the introduction of perpetrator-focused domestic abuse programmes in their area.

Quality perpetrator work must always incorporate a quality victim response. We look forward to seeing how this funding will be used by PCCs and partner organisations to support perpetrator-focused domestic abuse programmes that increase safety for victims-survivors, including children.

The areas of focus within the fund are:

  1. Programmes that address known issues in relation to DA offending
  2. Programmes that focus on children and adolescents
  3. Programmes aimed at stalking perpetrators

The funding period is from 1st August 2021 – 31st March 2022, and there is a 4 month match funding requirement which can be in kind. The closing date for applications is 2nd July 2021 at 12pm.
