Description

The Home Office is seeking to award grant funding to statutory or non-statutory sector organisations in England and Wales working to promote and embed best practice in the provision of support to children and young people who have experienced sexual abuse.

Through the CSA Support Services Transformation Fund we will provide grants to successful bidders, paid under the government’s grant-making powers. We are looking to award up to £2.8m across England and Wales by the end of the 2021-22 financial year (£1.4m is available in financial year 2020/21 and £1.4m in 2021/22).

In making a final decision on allocation of this funding, the Home Office will ensure that an appropriate distribution of projects is funded in terms of type of intervention and the groups of children and young people who will be beneficiaries. While there is no formal cap on the amount an organisation can bid for, bidders should consider this when deciding upon the size of grant they will be applying for.

Successful proposals must contribute to the achievement of the overall objectives of the fund, which are:
1) To promote and disseminate best practice in the provision of support to help children and young people cope with and, as far as possible, recover from sexual abuse.
2) To improve the quality of support available to children and young people who have experienced sexual abuse.
3) To build understanding of what works to support children and young people who have experienced sexual abuse.

Please note the full description of this grant funding competition can be found in the attachment to this notice.

**PLEASE NOTE THAT THE START DATE OF THIS GRANT FUNDING IS 1 APRIL 2020 AND NOT 13 AUGUST 2020**

In December 2016, the Cabinet Office launched its minimum standards for government grants: These include the requirement that competition should be the default option when considering award of grant funding.

To comply, the Home Office has decided to manage its competitions using it’s eSourcing portal. The event will be run on the Home Office (HO) Jaggaer eSourcing portal.
In order to bid for funding, bidders will first need to register on the portal via the following link:
https://homeoffice.app.jaggaer.com/web/login.html
Bidders should be approved for usage within 24 hours of registering on the system.

After clicking on the eSourcing portal link, it should take you to the home page. On the left-hand side of this page, just below the login boxes, there is an option to register.

To register as a supplier you will need to provide information which will include:
• the full legal name of your organisation
• your DUNS number – a unique nine-digit number provided to organisations free of charge by Dun & Bradstreet
• profile information describing your organisation and the size of your business

Once registered as a supplier on the portal, please e-mail confirmation to: victimsfund@homeoffice.gov.uk. You will then be given access to the event which will include all the documentation you will need in order to bid.

If you have any difficulties registering on the system then you should contact the Supplier eSourcing Helpdesk: customersupport@jaggaer.com

• About the system

The HO Jaggaer eSourcing portal is independent of other eSourcing portals. Therefore if you have registered on the Crown Commercial Service Jaggaer eSourcing portal, you will also need to register on the HO Jaggaer eSourcing portal.

Please note that bids will only be accepted via the HO eSourcing portal. Any bids received outside of this system will not be considered by the Authority.
Once registered as a supplier on the portal please send a notification email to victimsfund@homeoffice.gov.uk to request access to the associated documents for this fund.

Please note that registering for access to the eSourcing tool will not make you a Home Office supplier. To be considered for award of funding you must first respond to an opportunity.

Further information about procurement at the Home Office can be found on the gov.uk website.
