This Notice launches the competition for the provision of Homicide Service in England and Wales. The requirement is for an initial two year period with the option to extend for up to a further two year period. This single grant will be to provide for homicide support for those bereaved by murder and manslaughter in England and Wales.

The new single grant award will have one set of funding which will be inclusive of those bereaved both pre and post 2010. The services provided will include:
– Caseworker Support
– Peer Support

– Online Digital Platform for Peer-to-Peer Support
The award criteria will be based in the best value for money. Potential providers will be bidding for a single service covering England and Wales and the grant will be awarded to a single or lead organisation or consortia. Variant bids will not be permitted.
