Lambeth Violence Against Women and Girls (VAWG) services – one year contract extensions

Contracts for Lambeth’s community-based gender-based violence support provision (the Gaia Centre), refuge beds and female genital mutilation support service, end on 31 March 2020.

Proposed decision is to extend the existing contracts for these services, for one year, from 1 April 2020 – 31 March 2021. This is in order to allow a period of time to complete a range of activities, and allow for external dependency factors to develop sufficiently to inform decision making; this will inform future commissioning from 1 April 2021.
