HM Prison and Probation Service launches 2020-2022 Grants Programme
The HM Prison and Probation Service is inviting voluntary organisations that support the rehabilitation of people in the criminal justice system in England and Wales to apply
for funding for projects that trial new ideas and approaches or develop current programmes within new settings or with a new group of service users.
Registered charities, exempt charities and social enterprises can apply for grants of between £50,000 and £250,000 to develop and test out approaches which complement core provisions for people in the criminal justice system and enhance outcomes for service users.
The funding is divided across four different themes:
There are four grant themes that organisations can apply for funding under. The four themes are:
- Improving support for families and significant others (ITT 3674)
- Improving outcomes for those with protected characteristics (ITT 3675)
- Improving health and well-being (ITT 3677)
- Improving safer custody across the prison estate (ITT 3676).
Projects can take place in any prison, with any National Probation Client and/or within the Youth estate. They may be limited to one prison, one probation area/office or cover multiple sites.
The deadline for applications is 1 November 2019 (10am).
Full details can be found on the Ministry of Justice (MoJ) Sourcing Portal under the Project number Prj_1662 which is available here. You must create an account.
Potential Contract - Rough Sleep Accommodation
Northumberland County Council is seeking to procure safe overnight accommodation for rough sleepers.
We would like to seek views from the market and explore opportunities that will enable us to identify whether a procurement exercise would attract sufficient interest in the provision of a rough sleeper accommodation service and if so, what this model would look like.
We would ask Providers to complete the Soft Market Questionnaire.
