In response to an EU Directive for adoption into National law, a new support service for victims of crime must be commissioned by the PCC to meet victims’ needs at a local level.
Dorset PCC have applied for ‘Early Adopter’ status on the scheme with the contract commencement date of 1 October 2014.  This date MUST be achieved and to facilitate this a transition period of approximately 6 weeks prior to this date is being factored in to enable a seamless handover from the current provider to support victims of crime in Dorset.
The level of service provision is as dictated by the 2012 revised MoJ Code of Practice for Victims of Crime (Victims Code) and establishes a minimum standard of rights, support and protection to victims with the aim to provide a service against the national outcomes of COPE and RECOVER enabling the victim to cope with the immediate effect of crime, and recover from the harm they have experienced.  Victims will be supported through the MoJ Victims Fund however not all victims will be directed through this contract some may be provided support through the national contract on behalf of the PCC.
The expectation is that the service will fit within the wider framework of support in the area and make best use of, and not duplicate support already in existence in the community, and that the service provider will work with the commissioner to identify solutions to barriers for positive outcomes and promote social value initiatives to benefit the community.
