The Office of Police and Crime Commissioning for Derbyshire has commissioned LimeCulture Community Interest Company (CIC) to pathway review of Services in Derbyshire for Victims/Survivors Sexual Abuse and/or Assault. 

This will include the services for all adults, children  & young people and will review the
•     Current provision of services in Derbyshire, how they are funded and delivered
•     Access and availability of services in Derbyshire, including assessing demand, referral type, thresholds, access and exclusion criteria for services,
•     Gaps in service provision and where needs could be better targeted
•     What are effective responses to victims and survivors and how they can be achieved
•     Whether there are any operational barriers to implementation and delivery of services for victims/survivors, including any learning from changes made to mitigate the impact of COVID-19.

We will be running a series of focus groups and interviews with services, commissioners.

LimeCulture CIC, a national sexual violence training and development organisation with a strong track record of victim and survivor engagement in relation to service improvement is developing the needs assessment.

This survey allows survivors and family members/supporters to contribute views anonymously about their needs, the support they have received or reasons why they have not accessed support.

This survey will be available online from the 19th of April until the 20th of June 2021  .

Confidentiality - All responses to this survey will be treated in the strictest confidence and fully anonymised before they are shared with the funders of this research.

Security - All members of the LimeCulture CIC research team have enhanced disclosure barring systems (DBS) checks and experience of working with victims/survivors of sexual violence.

Storage - Responses will be stored in our secure data server in an area accessible only to the LimeCulture research team. All identifiable information will be deleted from our servers when the research is complete at the end of July 2021.
