The West Midlands VRU is taking a public health approach to violence reduction which means putting evidence at the heart of policy decisions.

It is also understanding that prevention and early intervention are more effective and this means not just looking at data about violence but looking at the risk factors too – the early indicators that increase the likelihood that people may become involved with violence in the future.

This highlights the importance of working with partners and gathering data and insight from a diverse range of sources.

Our strategic needs assessment reveals the detail on violence and risk in the West Midlands, but click on the local authority areas on the map below for a snapshot of some of the key stats.
