New funding for Domestic abuse and sexual violence support


The Domestic Abuse and Sexual Violence Fund has become available following an announcement from the Ministry of Justice (MoJ).

The MoJ confirmed that Police (Fire) & Crime Commissioners (PCCs/PFCCs) will receive £69.1 million ‘core’ funding, £27 million ringfenced funding to recruit and retain 700 Independent Sexual Violence Advisors (ISVAs) and Independent Domestic Violence Advisors (IDVAs) and £15.7 million ringfenced funding for domestic abuse (DA) and sexual violence (SV) support services.

On 25 March 2022, it was confirmed that this funding will be delivered over a multi-year basis until the end of 2024/25.

If you would like to apply for funding, you must complete a needs assessment form.  This application should cover:

The allocation of funding for the DA/SV community-based services.

The assessment should cover needs for 2022/23 with any allocation of funding being assessed for allocation on a multi-year basis.

The allocation of funding for an additional 100 ISVAs and IDVAs posts to be recruited nationally in 2022/23 (£3.75 million).

Where posts are recruited in 2022/23, funding will be assessed for allocation for 2023/24 and 2024/25.

Applications need to be returned to the PFCC on the template below no later than midday on 25 April 2022
