The Health and Social Care Board (HSCB) is undertaking a tender for the regional service that supports victims of sexual violence and abuse. This tender configuration exists for the delivery of counselling, public awareness through education and research in surviving sexual violence and abuse.
It is envisaged this service, which will be called – The Delivery of Counselling, Education and Research in Surviving Sexual Violence and Abuse Service – will be tendered for the period April 2019 – 2022, and is currently being commissioned by the HSCB.
As a result of a greater public awareness, more victims are coming forward to report the crime of sexual violence and abuse, or to seek independent support to help them deal with the trauma of sexual violence and abuse. The service will continue to raise public awareness through educating the public. The importance of undertaking research to evidence the needs of survivors is an integral component of the service.
The HSCB is currently developing the tender documentation for this tender: The Delivery of Counselling, Education and Research in Surviving Sexual Violence and Abuse Service and wishes to complete a market sounding in advance of finalising the tender documentation.
