I could open up and expose my vulnerabilities (ignorance, assumptions, and thoughts on diversity issues) be challenged, supported and nurtured all at once and not feel bad about it. I think this in itself says something about how the trainers were able to hold this and facilitate this so well.
Briefing: Model Outcomes Framework and Service Standards for Violence Against Women and Girls services
- Women’s Aid and Imkaan in partnership are developing a model outcomes framework for survivors of violence against women and girls (VAWG) and, based on this framework, are issuing new National Service Standards for VAWG Services.
- The outcomes framework will serve multiple purposes. At a local level, organisations will be able to continuously identify survivor needs and develop their services accordingly, ensuring improved responses to VAWG . The framework will also provide a set of survivor-identified outcomes to inform funders’ commissioning processes.
- At a national level, the outcomes framework will enable nationwide data collection to build a clear evidence base of the nature and extent of VAWG, to assess the effectiveness of the range of support and interventions available, and to provide an opportunity for benchmarking and best practice development.
- The service standards will serve as a set of guidelines for commissioners and funders looking to fund and/or evaluate services. They will further enable sector-wide improvement, service responsiveness and development.
- The outcomes framework and service standards will have an integrated human rights framework to ensure services and interventions are human rights focused and are in line with national and international duties to protect survivors, prevent VAWG, and to improve justice responses to survivors through partnership working.
- We are working with voluntary sector organisations with specialisms across the equalities strands to ensure outcomes of survivors with protected characteristics are encompassed in the framework.
- We are additionally sharing information and knowledge with Respect, a national membership organisation that provides helpline support to male victims of domestic abuse, with a view to enabling the development of a male survivors’ outcome framework. This is in response to emerging evidence of the different needs of male survivors and therefore the different service responses required.
- The outcomes framework and service standards are being developed in on-going consultation with support staff, management, and survivor representatives from Imkaan and Women’s Aid member organisations. The draft outcomes framework will be presented at Women’s Aid conference in July 2013.
