Invitation to Tender - Adult Diversion Pilot for Women
The Mayor’s Office for Policing and Crime, the Metropolitan Police Service, other statutory partners and Voluntary Community Sector service providers, have developed a model for a pilot that seeks to test an adult diversion scheme for women in London. At the point of arrest, instead of prosecution, an Out of Court Disposal will be offered to female offenders, alongside an integrated holistic package of support.
This pilot will drive multi-agency working between statutory, Voluntary Community Sector service providers and other statutory partners and is part of a wider programme of work to develop a whole system approach to identifying and addressing the needs of London’s female offenders. In addition to improving the referral pathways for vulnerable women to improve their health and well-being, we want to see the impact of addressing the underlying drivers of their offending behaviour on reducing the number who enter the criminal justice system and reductions in reoffending.
We are inviting tenders for the provision of community-based services for adult female offenders referred to the pilot. Please find below the Invitation to Tender.

Victims of crime - Small Grants Fund
A large proportion of services for victims of crime are delivered by small voluntary, community and social enterprise (VCSE) organisations. MOPAC operates a Victims Fund consisting of small grants that seek to improve cooperation and collaboration between providers, with the ultimate aim of providing end-to-end victim services that are led by the victim’s needs and help victims of crime to cope and recover. The small grants fund is managed by the London Community Foundation and the final round of the fund, for the 2019/20 financial year, is now open.
Since 2015, the Victims Fund has awarded over £3.5 million, including multi-year projects some of which will continue into 2019/20. The total funding available for 2019/20 is circa £300,000. Grants of between £10,000 and £35,000 (with a higher cap for partnership bids) are available through an application process. For further information about the fund, including the application process and forms, please contact the London Community Foundation at londoncf.org.uk.
