Value of contract: £500k – £8.0m
The Home Office is seeking to tackle domestic abuse by allocating £8M grant funding (from April 2018 to March 2020) for interventions designed to support children under the age of 18 years who are/have been exposed to domestic abuse. Submissions are welcome from statutory (e.g. local commissioners, be they PCCs, local authorities or health commissioners, across England and Wales) and non-statutory organisations across England and Wales as well as consortium bids incorporating larger and smaller organisations (but these must have a legal lead.)
Bidders should note that a Home Office condition of any grant funding will be that grant recipients are not permitted to charge, apply fees to or require payment for any activity provided in connection with this Grant Agreement or otherwise use the grant to undertake or engage in activities that result in commercial gain or profit.
All bids must be for two years only, and bidders must be able to demonstrate the ability to spend their entire potential award by the 31 March 2020. Please be aware that you may bid for a minimum of £500,000 and while there will not be a formal cap placed on the amount an organisation can bid for, we expect all bids to be scalable.
To ensure diversity of funding, please be aware that we may scale back top scoring bids in line with the scalability details provided in the tender documentation. All submissions will be evaluated using the criteria made available in the tender documentation. All successful organisations will be allocated funding centrally via a Grant Agreement from the Home Office.
The process leading to the award of the grant will be administered using Crown Commercial Services eSourcing portal, and all submissions must be made online via this portal. To take part in this grant funding opportunity, please see the ‘how to apply’ guidance (within the attachment) that provides important instructions for registration on the portal, then gaining access to this opportunity.
