Core Principles for Commissioned Services
The VRU is committed to working effectively with partner organisations to deliver services that reduce and prevent violence. Providers delivering services do an outstanding job in supporting those in need and addressing risk and harm but are often themselves unsupported.
We have developed a set of core principles and ways of working which outline what an effective service seeking to reduce and prevent violence should look like. This is based on the evidence base, and on the research and delivery experience built up over the first 2 years of the VRU’s work. We don’t have all the answers and we don’t expect you to either. This document sets out our commitment to effective co-production of local services.
These core principles are not intended to be a checklist. Instead they outline our expectations for those providers working with us to protect young people.
The VRU is here to help. We deliver/can facilitate access to a range of training offers and CPD opportunities for frontline practitioners including:
- Trauma informed training
- Anti-racist training
- Awareness and identification of exploitation
- Mentors in Violence Prevention,
- Understanding Inequalities
- Understanding the Public Health approach to violence
If you are interested in learning more about these CPD opportunities, please email the VRU directly on [email protected]
Sorry, we currently don't have any opportunities available.
