Tackling Serious Crime

South Gloucestershire Council, through the Violence Reduction Partnership (VRP), has a body of professionals working together to identify challenging behaviours and intervening quickly to prevent serious violence (read more, click here).

You can also find out more information about the VRP on the website for the Avon and Somerset Police and Crime Commissioner.

This body has worked with the Ben Kinsella Trust to reproduce a guide for parents and carers to help them speak to their child about knife crime and the risks and devastating consequences of carrying a weapon. The booklet can be downloaded using the following link:
