Executive summary

In July 2014 the Deputy Mayor for Policing and Crime (DMPC) approved decision DMPCD201474 which authorised the release of £239, 200 over two years to implement a Harmful Practices Pilot Initiative.
MOPAC went out to tender for a core element of this work (training and advocacy) in November 2014 to the amount of £200,000 with the caveat that a separate, additional £39,200 would be allocated for community engagement work at a borough level.
After an open, competitive grant award process a panel of key partners scored the bids independently and have selected a preferred provider, to deliver the training and advocacy element.

Recommendation

The DMPC is asked to:
Approve an award of £200,000 to Iranian Kurdish Women’s Rights Organisation (IKWRO) to deliver the advocacy and training elements of the Harmful Practices pilot.
That MOPAC allocate £39,200 to the Tri-borough partnership (Westminster, Royal Borough of Kensington & Chelsea Hammersmith & Fulham) and East London partnership (Tower Hamlets & Waltham Forest) for community engagement activity to be commissioned by the respective local authorities.
