PCC announces contract for a new Adult Specialist Service

Following a commissioning process conducted by the Office of the PCC for Thames Valley, the  Partnership is delighted to have been selected to deliver a new Specialist Service for Adult Victims.   The new service, which will start in April 2020, will provide tailored support to meet the individual needs of victims  who have higher level, or longer term support needs and could include trauma-informed interventions in individual or group settings, advocacy support including help to access mental health or drug and alcohol services, restorative justice conferencing, as well as practical and emotional support to navigate the criminal justice process.

The Partnership will work closely with Oxford Sexual Assault and Rape Crisis Centre (OSARCC) and Trusthouse Reading to deliver the service involving co-located teams; bringing professionals with different specialisms together.

“We are delighted to have this opportunity to be involved with the new Adult Specialist Service, working with the other partner agencies to offer a more encompassing and holistic approach to the needs of the victim. We already have a long-standing working relationship with the PCC for Thames Valley and the new service will now enable us to offer the best possible support to victims, to help them deal with, and recover from, the trauma of their experiences.”   Nikki Ross,  Chief Executive of Partnership
