Membership & Governance
The VRN is an open network and we welcome all communities and organisations who are already working to prevent violence or have an interest in doing so. We will hold Network events to share knowledge, gain insights in violence from different perspectives and provide opportunities for joint problem-solving.
Meet the Team
The team is based at the Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner offices, Leicestershire Police Headquarters. They have been established to co-ordinate and deliver the work required to fulfil the aims of the Network.
The VRN's Programme Board provides the formal governance for the work of the VRN and receives reports from the VRN Team. The Board is responsible for providing the leadership and strategic co-ordination of our local response to violence including the publication of a long-term plan.
The Programme Board reports to the Strategic Partnership Board which is chaired by the Police and Crime Commissioner and includes Chief Officers from all local public services.
The work of the VRN and Programme Board will be informed by insights and solutions generated by panels held within different communities across Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland. We are particularly interested in ensuring that those most affected by violence are empowered to participate in our work, including young people and their families.
The VRN Development Group comprises of champions from different organisations who meed to identify and pursue opportunities to improve prevention work across the partnership.
The insights and recommendations generated by the Group are shared with the Programme Board and influence the VRN's work. Champions also play a crucial role in promoting the work of the VRN and the violence prevention agenda within their parent organisation.
