SafeLives domestic violence commissioning support

Commissioning support

SafeLives knows what works to tackle domestic abuse. We offer independent, practical and evidence-based advice on how to design, commission and run better services to make all families safe. In the past year, we’ve worked for police and crime commissioners, councils and other partnerships.

We bring our years of experience and practical expertise to help you do far more, more cost-effectively.

We can help you get your service specification right. That way you'll know that families in your area are getting the very best support.

Our Insights measurement tool gives a clear picture of what local families need. See what impact your domestic abuse services are making and get help with contract monitoring. 

Discover the benefits of using our Leading Lights quality standards for the services you commission. 

Get detailed, tailored advice from experts. Find out how you can use your resources most effectively to help more families.

The purpose of these standards is to enable joint commissioning across specialist services in the VAWG sector, both nationally and locally.
