Funded Opportunities to join the Police Commissioner in ending violence against women and girls
30 Nov 2021 by Mazeline Hemmings
Sandwell Council currently have several service tenders open for funding opportunities through the Safer Streets 3 – violence against women and girls – VAWG fund.
Addressing violence against women and girls (VAWG) is a key priority of the West Midlands Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC), Simon Foster. There has been a strong response from the community on this issue and it has been acknowledged nationally with the introduction of the Tackling Violence Against Women and Girls Strategy 2021.
We know that women and girls in our community are at disproportionate risk of a wide range of crimes; this is unacceptable and our response seeks to ensure that women and girls feel safe in the West Midlands.
Through these specifications, the PCC seeks to appoint partner organisation(s) who will deliver the management and separately the communications lead for the OPCC awarded Safer Streets 3, Violence Against Women and Girls Fund project.
The deadline is COP Tuesday 7th December.
