West Yorkshire Violence Reduction Partnership - Projects
West Yorkshire Violence Reduction Partnership - Partners
Launched in early 2020, the West Yorkshire Violence Reduction Partnership (VRP) brings together specialists from health, police, local government, education, youth justice, prisons, probation, third sector and community organisations to tackle violent crime and the underlying causes of violent crime.
We are taking a fundamentally different approach to violence reduction – one where the public sector institutions and communities that make up West Yorkshire act together to help cut violence with early intervention, prevention, education and partnership working. Using a public health approach, the VRP considers how the causes of violence can be addressed. Public health approaches start from the principle that prevention is better than cure.
