Commissioning Strategy

Commissioning Strategy

Your Commissioner is responsible for funding a range of local services that aim to increase community safety, reduce offending behaviour and support the victims of crime to cope and heal from their experiences.

Services are commissioned using four funds from the Office of the Commissioner’s budget relating to community safety, children and young people, supporting victims and reducing reoffending. We also regularly apply and receive funding from central Government grants and collaborate with partners including other local authorities to jointly fund services.

The Commissioning Strategy sets out how the Office prioritises funding from the Commissioner.

This includes ensuring all funding is provided fairly and transparently, and that services are outcome focused and work efficiently alongside with the police, local authorities and other relevant agencies.
