Closing the gaps in sexual harm crisis support services

A Registration of Interest (ROI) process was held to identify suitable providers to fill the remaining gaps in the provision of sexual harm crisis support services.

Twelve areas (six in the Midlands region and six in the Southern region) still had gaps in their crisis support services following an earlier tender process.

To address these gaps, we ran an ROI process to identify suitable providers to deliver these services.

This approach enabled us to engage directly with providers to explain the service requirements and to explore approaches to increase capability, for example, through collaborative arrangements between providers.

Contracts have now been signed with providers to fill these gaps. See the list of successful providers below.
