Charities and other organisations which work specifically with perpetrators of domestic abuse are being invited to express interest for vital funding by the region’s Police Commissioner.

Merseyside’s Police Commissioner is urging organisations to come forward with expressions of interest for projects that work with perpetrators of domestic abuse to tackle and prevent their behaviour, protecting families which are at risk.

Emily Spurrell is inviting charities and eligible groups to contact her to confirm their interest in submitting bids for projects which work specifically with perpetrators of domestic abuse to change their behaviour, lower the risk of reoffending and reduce the number of victims. Funding is also available for projects which work with perpetrators of stalking.

Between £300,000 and £1m is available for projects which will run for two years from 1st April 2023 until 31st March 2025 from the Perpetrators Intervention Fund jointly delivered by the Home Office and Ministry of Justice

The most effective bids will be put forward by the Commissioner for funding. More than £36m is currently available nationally and the Commissioner is keen to work with partners to secure as much funding as possible to tackle abusive behaviour across the region.

  • Provide a minimum of 25% of "match funding" to enable their programme to run
