Grant Funding: Drive Fund 2020

The Home Office is seeking to award grant funding to Police and Crime Commissioners (PCCs) in England and Wales, to support the adoption of Drive in their area. Domestic abuse is a devastating crime that shatters the lives of victims and their families. We are determined to ensure that anyone facing the threat of domestic abuse has the help they need. We are determined to transform our approach to domestic abuse to give victims the confidence to come forward and report their experiences, safe in the knowledge that they will receive the help they need to support them and their children and bring their perpetrator to justice. While we want to stop violence and abuse happening in the first place, where it does happen, perpetrators must be brought to justice. Not only will we continue to ensure that effective criminal justice sanctions are taken against perpetrators, but we will also support sustainable behaviour change and robust disruption to reduce reoffending and stop perpetrators from moving from one victim to the next. We have continued to work hard to ensure that we are able to bring more perpetrators to justice and support victims through the criminal justice system, including introducing a landmark Domestic Abuse Bill alongside a programme of non-legislative action to transform the response to this appalling crime. Drive Fund From 2018 - 2020 the Government funded the development of a range of innovative approaches to working with perpetrators of domestic abuse through the Police Transformation Fund. We want to build on this work by funding the expansion of approaches that have demonstrated their effectiveness, like the Drive Project, and to continue to develop the evidence base by funding programmes or interventions that require further evaluation of their impact. We also want to strengthen the evidence base for 'what works' in addressing perpetrators' behaviour to support effective commissioning of services going forward. England and Wales, with service providers delivering the intervention in local areas. The fund is open to Police and Crime Commissioners (PCCs) in England and Wales.
