The proposal is to engage a project manager to research, analyse and develop an ‘ideal’ victims service framework for the Cleveland and Durham areas from 1st April 2016.
The project manager will be directed by the Strategic Board and the Monthly Grant Review Board set up under the Grant Agreement for Victim Referral Services.
The project manager will be required to operate with an appropriate degree of autonomy and ethical separation from Victim Support.
This will ensure independence when investigating, auditing and delivering recommendations related to projects and tasks given by the boards. Suitable provision has been made in the grant agreement to this effect.
Further information can be found in the project proposal and grant agreement appended to this decision.
