The Violent Crime Prevention Board (www.vcpb.org) announces the launch of VCP Ventures led by our new board member, Jeremy Chapman. This will be a one-year business start-up support programme to mark and recognise three years since the launch of the Violent Crime Prevention Board.

Our Themes

Crime isn’t caused by any one thing, so we focus on eight core themes, each one addresses the main contributory factors of violent crime and fills an identified communications gap. The themes our board covers are, youth, parents & family, stop & search, education, health and wellbeing, faith, community growth and policing.

Approaches to Violence Reduction

July 2019

On 16th April 2019, we hosted a working breakfast conference that included young people, community leaders, practitioners, police, and policy-makers at the Renaissance Hotel, Kings Cross. The conference primarily focused upon listening to the voices of young people and those impacted by violence, who constituted the majority of those present. 

The discussion explored the underlying issues causing violent crime and proposed solutions. These issues are complex and are examined across various themes such as health, faith and third-sector, families, youth, education and stop-and search. We want these results to constitute an important contribution to the debate around violent crime for the community and policy-makers.
