Other Funds & Grant Agreements
The Partnership Fund
The partnership fund provides for collaborative working initiatives that demonstrate outcomes across priority 2 and 3 within the police and crime plan. The fund will focus on initiatives that deliver a stepped improvement in services to victims of domestic and sexual violence and support tackling community safety and anti-social behaviour at a very local level in our communities. The fund will secure the continued provision of financial support to county wide services for youth offending, community based domestic violence advisors and community safety partnerships. The fund also aims to support new and enhanced services in partnership with health for victims of domestic and sexual violence and provide additional funding for the work of the Safer Cumbria Action Group

The Victims Services Fund
The victims’ services fund is a specific ring-fenced fund backed by a central Government grant that is received annually to commission services. The grant is subject to some conditions but the intention is that we are able to commission the widest possible range of services for victims and by the widest possible means. Services and interventions commissioned locally will take account of those services that will continue to be provided nationally, the EU Victims Directive and the objectives of priority 4 within the police and crime plan. The fund will commission victims referral services and local support services in addition to a victim’s information hub that will bring together a range of information to support victims and providers in accessing further help. Victims services advocacy will be managed through a charitable trust to ensure victims receive the best possible level of care from all agencies and providers.
