II.1.5)Short description of the contract or purchase(s)

The Police and Crime Commissioner for Nottinghamshire, ‘the Commissioner’, has a wide remit to cut crime and improve community safety in Nottingham and Nottinghamshire. The Nottinghamshire Police and Crime Plan 2013-18 sets out the Commissioner’s intentions to achieve safer communities and improve trust and confidence in high quality policing by reducing crime and antisocial behaviour, ensuring fairer treatment of victims and citizens and demonstrating using public resources wisely. The plan includes a specific commitment to ‘protect, support and respond to victims, witnesses and vulnerable people’.
Police and Crime Commissioners were given the power to commission local support services for victims of crime by the Anti-Social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Bill in March 2014.
The Commissioner receives a grant from Ministry of Justice (MoJ) to commission local victim support services, in line with the Code of Practice for Victims of Crime 2013 and to support victims to achieve cope and recover outcomes. He now wishes to commission a provider (‘the Provider’) to deliver the Nottinghamshire Integrated Victims’ Support Service (‘the Service’).
The aim of the Service is to provide victim-centred support to empower victims and survivors to cope and recover from crime and anti-social behaviour.
The Service must help to prevent repeat victimisation, protect victims from further harm and be open and accountable to victims.
The Service will be delivered:
— in accordance with and in the spirit of the Victims’ Code, which means services shall be free of charge, confidential, available whether reported as a crime or not, non-discriminatory and able to support the victim before, during and after any court proceedings, to aid ‘cope and recover’;
— in with the requirement of the Public Services (Social Value) Act 2012, where the Provider ‘will improve the economic, social and environmental well-being’ of the local communities within which this Service will work.
The Service will be based in Nottingham/shire and anchored in diverse local communities across the city and county; either through co-located local bases and/or use of locally based staff and/or volunteers. It must be delivered by staff and volunteers who are able to demonstrate insight and understanding into victims’ needs.
