Invitation to take part: exploring the funding and commissioning of specialist sexual violence services

The PROSPER Study (suPporting Role Of SPecialist sERvices) invites senior staff at specialist voluntary sector organisations to take part in an online survey about the provision, funding and commissioning of specialist services for victim-survivors of sexual violence in England.

This is the first national academic study to map what services are being provided by specialist sexual violence services and to explore providers’ views about funding and commissioning processes. The findings will generate new understanding about how specialist services in England should be commissioned (and funded) to support victim-survivors to thrive in the long term, with a focus on those in the voluntary sector.

The survey should take about 20 minutes to complete. To access the survey click here. The PROSPER study is funded by the NIHR and led by the University of Birmingham. Please see the study summary for more information.
