West Midlands Violence Reduction Partnership

The Partnership aims to reduce violent crime and has a team within Sandwell. It benefits from the expertise of partners in public health, criminal justice, sports, education and policing in order to take a collaborative approach. The Partnership Helping Communities Fund supports programmes based on local community needs. This includes children and young adult’s up to 25 years old emotional wellbeing programmes both for victims of crime and also those who may have caused harm to others, due in part to their own wellbeing. Examples of funded projects include ‘Believe to Achieve’ which is mentoring for children and families, ‘Box Clever’ for children up to 18 (plus links on the VRP directory to other services suitable for adults) and contribute to Sandwell youth services for detached youth work where support is given to young people who are out and about in the community. They also lead on free trauma informed training for professionals.
