Catch22 has today announced that it has been commissioned by Greater Manchester Combined Authority to deliver a refreshed Greater Manchester Victims’ Services (GMVS) from September 2023.
Greater Manchester Victims’ Services support victims and witnesses of both reported and unreported crime from across the city-region. Independent Victim Care Coordinators, positioned within GMVS, will provide comprehensive and tailored support to individuals affected by crime, ensuring they receive the care and assistance they deserve during their journey towards recovery.
The refreshed service will support Greater Manchester’s unwavering commitment to improving services for victims of crime and will also focus on strengthening local partnerships and fostering greater collaboration with Greater Manchester Police (GMP).
Andy Canniford, Chief Development Officer at Catch22, said:
“We are thrilled to have been awarded the contract to deliver Greater Manchester’s Victims’ Services. This opportunity strengthens our dedication to providing comprehensive, compassionate, and empowering support to victims, helping them rebuild their lives in the aftermath of crime, and creating a safer, more united Greater Manchester.”
The Greater Manchester Victims’ Services will become part of Catch22’s victims portfolio, which currently supports victims of crime to cope and recover across Hertfordshire, Nottinghamshire, and Leicestershire.
With Catch22’s proven track record of delivering impactful services and unwavering commitment to empowering communities, this service promises to make a lasting difference in the lives of victims and survivors across Greater Manchester.
