Voscur and Somerset VCSE Strategic Forum

Voscur and Somerset VCSE Strategic Forum have been commissioned by Avon and Somerset Police and Crime Commissioner’s Office to link with the wider voluntary and community sector, to seek their views on the future of victim support services and how current services impact on their organisations. This is part of the ongoing engagement on the OPCC’s Commissioning Intentions. We are particularly keen to discuss this opportunity with potential providers who may be interested in bidding for these services.

You are invited to participate in a half day workshop on either of the following dates:

  • Thursday 17 May 2018, 9.30am - 12.30pm at The Station, Silver St, Bristol BS1 2AG
  • Tuesday 22 May 2018, 1pm - 4pm at The Albemarle Centre, Albemarle Road, Taunton, TA1 1BA

There will be an opportunity at both events to hear from staff from the Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner and to hear a summary of the recent needs analysis survey.

If you are unable to attend either event you can also read the Commissioning Intentions, Needs Assessment and contribute by completing the Stakeholder survey: https://www.avonandsomerset-pcc.gov.uk/Partnerships/Victim-Services.aspx

TONIC has been appointed to work separately with the victims of crime and anti social behaviour. Victims can have their say by sharing their views via a confidential and anonymous survey: www.smartsurvey.co.uk/s/avon-and-somerset-victim-services/.

People can also take part in an interview with a researcher Dr Sarah Senker, text "PCC" to 07555 422 150 for more information.
