The Violence Prevention Partnership has a small central team, hosted within the Office of the Police & Crime Commissioner.

This team oversees the delivery of a programme of activity funded primarily through Home Office grants issued under the government’s serious violence programme, working to ministerial direction and priorities.

On behalf of the Police & Crime Commissioner, we oversee compliance by partners with their responsibilities under the Serious Violence Duty.  Through our leadership of the partnership model, we support whole-system change and cultural and financial sustainability.

We also invest into testing new interventions, funding specific programmes that meet government grant conditions. We then evaluate these interventions and contribute to the evidence base as to what works.

We also work with local partners to support in response to training needs. Finally, our partnership is leading the way in the developing new approaches to data-sharing, through the Thames Valley Together platform.
