As part of NRM reform, Home Office Ministers committed to testing ‘transition pathways’ with local authorities to identifying best practice in supporting victims to move out of central government-funded support and into local communities.

Nine local authorities applied to be part of this testing process and applications were assessed based on whether their proposals aligned with the aims of the project. For example, whether the proposals related to support for victims at the end of the NRM process, and whether they would provide opportunity to test the role of local authorities and their partners in supporting victims to transition out of NRM care.
