The West Midlands Violence Reduction Partnership (VRP) brings people together to reduce violence, vulnerability and exploitation in our region.
They are doing a survey to help better understand how people feel about current levels of youth violence in the West Midlands. The idea is to listen to communities and use this information to support the reduction and prevention of violence. In particular the survey aims to get a better understanding of:
- How people perceive serious youth violence across the West Midlands;
- How you react to serious youth violence across the West Midlands;
- How you feel organisations like the VRP should be responding to this issue;
- How faith and communities can be a part of exploring solutions to this issue, and the issues associated with it.
Pop in to find out more
As part of our theme Peaceful Brum, you can pop into Peace Hub throughout August to chat about these issues and take the survey. On Weds 23rd and Weds 30th August between 12 and 2pm members of the VRP team will be around to chat – they also have some new virtual reality tools to help young people understand the issues, which they’ll be happy to show you.
