Future of Adult Social Care Commission
- December 2022
MOPAC is prioritising reducing the impact of violence against women and girls (VAWG) through its action plan. The Home Office awarded MOPAC funding in 2017 for three projects:
These projects involve working with several agencies and taking an evidence-based, transformative approach to change the way that VAWG is dealt with.
Following a reduction in the funding available, the Mayor’s Office commissioned a review of the feasibility of sustaining its funding for these three projects. This reviewed the effectiveness and value for money of the projects.
The report was commissioned for a tight timeframe over the summer, which posed challenges. Delays meant that the projects had been running for short periods – quantitative data was in short supply. Several key participants were taking summer leave. We therefore needed to use academic literature and interviews with participants. The interviews enquired how stakeholders felt about the benefits of these programmes, and whether changes could be made to improve outcomes.
