Norfolk’s Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC), Stephen Bett, is inviting applications for grant funding to provide a county-wide Independent Domestic Violence Advisors (IDVA) service.
The funding will be for up to three years, with an option to extend by up to a further two years in one year extensions. The grant specification provides details regarding the required service levels and the application process.
IDVAs are professional case workers who support ‘high risk’ victims of domestic abuse and their children. The full definition of an IDVA is published by ‘Co-ordinated Action Against Domestic Abuse’ (CAADA).
The service will provide high quality, integrated and consistent IDVA provision across Norfolk, working with ‘high risk’ victims of domestic violence and abuse aged 16 years and over to provide intensive one-to-one support from the point of crisis, coordinating multi-agency support and providing practical solutions.
Requests for application forms and supporting documentation should be sent to:-
Mr Ian Sturgess
Domestic Abuse & Sexual Violence Coordinator
