Public Health Approach to Reducing Violence and Combatting Crime

In April, Theresa May and Sajid Javid opened a consultation on Serious Violence and the option for supporting a multi-agency ‘public health’ approach including options for the introduction of a new legal duty and a non-legislative option for partners to work together voluntarily to prevent and tackle serious violence.

Tackling serious violence requires a multi-agency approach involving a range of partners and agencies such as education, health, social services, youth services, offender management among others. As the consultation comes to a close, join us in August to discover how the public health approach can assist in the reduction of violent crime in your area. Learn how to work collaboratively and share information, data and intelligence across organisations and hear from the actors who have already adopted the public-health approach and analyse the outcomes.

Key issues to be addressed include:

  • How public health data is being used to reduce violence and combat crime
  • Whole community approach: joined-up initiatives between police, health services, local authorities, criminal justice agencies, communities
  • Using data and intelligence to identify the main burdens on the population
  • Implementing the Public Health Approach in practice - lessons learnt
  • Dealing with immediate responses to violence whilst planning long-term

About the event:

The morning session will focus on identifying the Public Health Approach to combatting crime and the successful results that have been published. It will also look at how a whole-community approach can be achieved including the sharing of data across organisations.

The afternoon session will examine practical case studies from leading Public Health Approach initiatives and how they are implemented and strengthened throughout the process.

Who should attend?

Anyone with an interest in new initiatives to tackle crime and reduce violence, including: community safety and CSP teams, the police, PCCs, local authorities, safeguarding officials, NCA, Home Office, health services, NGOs and charities, housing organisations, children's services and more.
