Innovation and Development Funding
As part of its response to the Scottish Human Rights InterAction the Scottish Government had committed to the development of a Survivor Support Fund and that, as such this might mean a change in the way that the innovation and development funding would be allocated.
We have been engaging with survivors and survivor organisations and, in view of what people have told us is needed we now propose to fund the development of services that focus on needs assessment, outcomes based approaches and locality based integrated partnership working.
Innovation and Development Funding of almost £1.8 million has been allocated to survivor services for 2015-16 to support the delivery of the Strategic Outcomes and Priorities 2015-17 approach.
Survivors tell us the following three outcomes are important to them
- A Healthier Life: Survivors are enabled and supported to enjoy an attainable standard of living, health and family life.
- Choice and Control: Survivors are treated with dignity and respect and are empowered and enabled to access the right support.
- Safety and Security: Survivors have access to resources and services which are trauma informed and have the capacity to recognise and respond to the signs of childhood abuse.
