The MPS and I are fully committed to supporting victims and survivors of sexual violence in the Capital. MOPAC is working with NHS England (London region), to commission a sexual violence needs assessment which will inform future commissioning intentions.  The needs assessment will offer a better understanding of the prevalence and nature of sexual violence in London and will look at current provision, including ISVAs, and proposed models for future delivery.
