Merseyside Violence Reduction Partnership

Working together to prevent and reduce violence in Merseyside.

Who we are

What we do

We are committed to creating violence-free communities in Merseyside, ensuring better life choices for young people and their families.

The Merseyside Violence Reduction Partnership (MVRP) is a team of subject leads and experts working together, with our communities, to address the underlying causes of violence and prevent it.

Adopting a public health approach, we are focused on intervening in a positive way to help young people and families from before birth to young adulthood.

We believe all communities across Merseyside have the right to be free from violence in order to present the best life chances for all.

We lead and support a wide range of initiatives across Merseyside, all with the single aim of reducing and preventing violence.

From before birth, right through to preventing re-offending, our multi-agency team is delivering system-wide support and projects, all focused on putting a stop to violence.

What’s happening

A Public Health Approach

Our partnership is built on the belief that if we improve lives and intervene early, we can prevent crime, especially violent crime.

We approach violence in the same way we would a disease – recognising the symptoms, understanding the causes and then stopping its transmission, giving people the tools they need to tackle it.
