Lancashire Violence Reduction Network is made up of a number of partners from across public services and the third sector.
On our team we have representatives from youth offending teams, schools and colleges, public health, police, children’s social care, probation, community safety partnerships, Lancashire PCC, Lancashire County Council and the NHS. Through this network, we aim to facilitate a system-wide trauma-informed approach to making Lancashire a safer place to live, work and visit.
