Leicester, Leicestershire & Rutland Domestic Abuse Perpetrator Interventions Project 2020

Call for Research Partners and an Invitation to Quote

Background

Leicester, Leicestershire & Rutland (LLR) is a sub-region in the East Midlands.  It covers a broad geographical area and diverse population. The LLR Force area covers over 2,500 square kilometres and a combined population of over a million. The area is highly diverse, and home to a diverse range of faiths and communities. Leicester residents come from over 50 different countries. Around a third of Leicester residents were born outside of the UK[1].

Leicester city council has commissioned a Respect[2] accredited voluntary domestic abuse perpetrator intervention since 2012. The police and crime commissioner for Leicestershire has invested in the CARA intervention[3], and in 2019 local partners established a sub-regional, multi-agency, perpetrators working group to intervene with those domestic abuse perpetrators of highest concern through the Integrated Offender Management approach.

Home Office funding has recently enabled us to expand and further develop domestic abuse non court mandated perpetrator interventions work across Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland. A project board of all interested parties and match funders has been established for the first time, including district, borough and county councils, the clinical commissioning groups and the voluntary sector lead delivery partner Freeva.

This document is an invitation to quote for evaluation of local domestic abuse perpetrator interventions, and further detail follows below.

At the same time, we are keen to establish links with any researchers looking to secure Home Office funding from the Domestic Abuse Perpetrators Research Fund REF: C19917, deadline 18th December 2020[4]As an area, we are particularly interested in the following elements of that specification:

  2. b) To strengthen the evidence base for ‘what works’ in addressing perpetrator behaviours.

 

And the following outcomes:
