Violence Risk Reduction and Public Health Webinar
May 19 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm
This webinar will explore what a public health approach to violence reduction looks like, both in theory and in practice.
In February 2021, the three North West Violence Risk Reduction Units and their partnerships received £7.9 million and in spite of COVID they have been very busy. The partnerships all adopted an innovative public health approach to violence reduction to break offending cycles, improve communities, and reduce the cost and pain of serious violence. By “public health approach” we mean education campaigns which run the life course, begin in the early years and last until adulthood and include the provision of positive alternatives to enable young people to find a purpose, whether by education or employment.
Find out what they are doing with this resource and what role health professionals can and should play. Hear about their highly creative and innovative approaches to addressing the wider determinants of crime and in so doing improving individual and community, economic and environmental wellbeing. If you interested in health inequalities and aren’t connected to your local partnership you should be.
