Pulse developed and delivered national a VCFSE Capability and Capacity Building Programme on behalf of the MOJ, engaging with all 43 Police and Crime Commissioners, providing Skills and Information workshops, and commissioning training and support to 867 VCFSE victims’ services providers to respond to the changing commissioning environment. VCFSE’s attending were surveyed to identify increased skills, capability, and confidence to bid for public sector contracts. The result was that VCFSEs were better prepared to bid for grants and contracts when new procurement was launched.
