Approval was sought from the Cabinet Member for grant funding over the course of two years, at a cost of £35,000 per annum, for the provision of a Perpetrator Programme with Intuitive Thinking Skills (ITS).

 

        Intuitive Thinking Skills previously delivered a short pilot project for the Community Safety Unit of their joint perpetrator and ‘affected others’ programmes, funding for which came from the Home Office under their Violence Against Women and Girls Service Transformation Fund 2017-2020.

 

        The projects were favourably evaluated by Derby University with significant improvement being observed in scores for both programmes; identified themes were listed within the report.  Derbyshire Constabulary also provided incident reporting data which suggested a significant change in the level of incidents for those who participated in the perpetrator programme.
