Victims of crime survey

Source by: Mayor of London

Have you been a victim of crime? Do you have a view on how support for victims in London should be provided?  We want to hear from you. 

Last year Sadiq Khan, the Mayor of London, announced an investment of over £47 million across three years for a range of victim support services. In order to ensure that the investment produces the best outcomes for victims, and meets the commitment within the Police and Crime plan of putting Victims at the heart of what we do, we need a clear idea of the current provision and what further support Victims need.  

Claire Waxman, the Independent Victims Commissioner for London, is carrying out a review of compliance with the Victims' Code of Practice (VCOP), alongside a Strategic Victims Needs Assessment to ensure victims get the help they need, when they need it. 

As part of that, we are asking victims to complete an online questionnaire about their experiences. This work seeks to understand the perspective of victims across the capital. By capturing the views and insights of victim as possible, we can identify their needs, the demand on services and gaps where further support is needed.

Join our Bowel Cancer Screening Programme pilot

Source By: Community African Network, Hackney CVS

Are you a GP surgery in Hackney?

Do you have a substantial number of Black African patients that are between 58 and 74 years old?

Join our Bowel Cancer Screening Programme pilot

The Community African Network (CAN) through Hackney CVS received a grant from the Healthier City and Hackney Fund to pilot a new approach to increasing the awareness of bowel cancer and the uptake of bowel cancer screening in the older Black African community through targeted outreach and working with GP surgeries in low uptake areas in Hackney.

We are inviting interested GP surgeries with a significant number of Black African patients to be part of this project. The project will recruit Community Health Champions to create awareness about Bowel Cancer and work in partnership with your surgery to encourage the target group to undertake screening. This project will support you in your bowel cancer screening contract and help improve uptake of screening.

The commitment required from participating surgeries will be:

 To work with HCVS/CAN for a year.

 Enter into data protection agreements with HCVS/CAN.

 To run or enable HCVS/CAN to run searches on EMIS to identify Black African patients about to receive their Bowel Cancer screening kit.

 To host Community Health Champions in the surgery one afternoon / morning a week.

 To give Community Health Champions access to EMIS in order for them to call Black African patients who are about to / have received bowel cancer screening tests to encourage them to return the kit

 To provide anonymised data of returned kits

 To provide one hour training from practice key personnel who make the calls to the Community Health Champions

 Successful GP surgeries will also be invited to attend the steering group for this project (optional?)

All Community Health Champions will receive training on Bowel Cancer from CNS, motivational interviewing and telephone etiquette centrally and will be supported throughout the programme by HCVS / Community African Network

If you are interested in being part of the project, complete the attached application form. For further information contact Oladapo Awosokanre, Project Coordinator, HCVS/CAN (email: oladapo@hcvs.org.uk or call 020 7923 8391).
