Serious Violence Prevention Project (Wales) Community Funding
As a response to increases in knife crime, gun crime and homicide in the UK, the Home Office Serious Violence Strategy (2018), places an emphasis on early intervention and prevention, to tackle root causes of violence and prevent young people from getting involved in crime. The Strategy sets out a multi-strand approach with partnerships across a number of sectors including education, youth services, social services, health, housing, and victim services.
To deliver on aspects of the Strategy and support the vision of their Police & Crime Plan, Police and Crime Commissioners in Wales are working in partnership to deliver a funding programme (June 2019 – March 2020) to explore youth work approaches to early intervention and prevention.
