The Government Equalities Office jointly commissioned the Stern Review with the Home Office.

Baroness Stern’s review of rape reporting in England and Wales has been allocated up to a maximum of £170,000 programme spend.

In the course of her review, Baroness Stern has consulted widely with key stakeholders in all English regions and Wales, including police forces, local authorities, the Crown Prosecution Service, the health service and third sector organisations. She is also taking into account the work of Sara Payne, the Victims’ Champion, and Sir George Alberti, who is leading a Department of Health taskforce on the health aspects of violence against women and girls.

As the review is still under way, final costs are yet to be established.
