PCC DN - Venue Hire and Catering for GM Victims Services Partnership event 13.03.24

Decision Maker: Director for Police, Crime, Criminal Justice and Fire

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: No


The reasons for the decision are:

This event is aimed to provide an open platform to engage with our commissioned victim support providers and deliver an update on the GM support offer to victims of crime which has recently gone through a process of review, investment and transformation.

It’s intended to facilitate open and honest conversations around current and upcoming challenges in the sector, and collectively identify and agree next steps. The second part in the afternoon will include a table-top group work exercise which will provide an opportunity for the sector to directly inform and feed into some current key work that is underway in relation to victims of crime support services.

Provider Catch22 is now fully mobilised as the Greater Manchester Victim Service (GMVS) delivering the contract for around 5 months. This provides an opportune moment to engage with the rest of the support sector to improve awareness of the service offer and establish/enhance linkage with providers. Building these relationships will assist in developing a more seamless offer to our victims of crime.
GMVS Dashboard

We are seeking sector feedback as we develop the victim’s dashboard which will be the tool used to update partners on the quantitative victims of crime data and trends across Greater Manchester.
