Criminal Injuries Compensation Scheme Review 2020

Criminal Injuries Compensation Scheme Review 2020

Deadline 9th October

The Criminal Injuries Compensation Scheme (the Scheme) is a statutory scheme that exists to compensate victims of violent crime in Great Britain. Its core purpose is to recognise, through compensation, the harm experienced by victims injured as a result of violent crime, including physical and sexual assault as well as domestic terrorist attacks. The Scheme was last reviewed in 2012. 

The cross-Government Victims Strategy of September 2018 included undertakings to do more for victims at every stage of the criminal justice system. As part of this, we committed to a comprehensive review of the Scheme and the terms of reference were published in December 2018. The review has examined whether the Scheme remains fit for purpose, reflects the changing nature of violent crime and effectively supports victims in their recovery.

Social prescribing approaches for migrants: call for evidence

Social prescribing approaches for migrants: call for evidence

Deadline 30th October

Public Health England is conducting an evidence review on social prescribing approaches for migrant populations in England in collaboration with University College London (UCL) and International Organization for Migration (IOM). 

Migrant populations with no recourse to public funds are at greater risk of experiencing social exclusion and marginalisation. The definition of social prescribing may encompass directing an individual to a greater range of services and activities compared to those traditionally prescribed for the general population. This could include links to services providing food security, legal advice, financial advice, housing support, employment assistance and language services to address the upstream social determinants of health and wellbeing. 

To complement an ongoing literature review, Public Health England (PHE) is inviting stakeholders to submit research data or reports

Government launches second phase of independent review into drug misuse

Government launches second phase of independent review into drug misuse

Published 2nd July

Building on an initial phase commissioned by the Home Office, the next stage of the review will focus on treatment, recovery and prevention. The overarching aim will be to ensure that vulnerable people with substance misuse problems get the support they need to recover and turn their lives around in the community and in prison. 

The review will consider how treatment services can enable people with a drug dependency to achieve and sustain their recovery – spanning a wide range of services they may interact with across mental health, housing, employment and the criminal justice system. 

Professor Dame Carol Black has been appointed to lead the review following her initial report commissioned by the Home Office, (opens in a new tab) which looked at the challenges around drug supply and demand
