About the project
We know that a lot of violent crime happens in very specific local areas. To make a difference, many believe that it’s essential to work with the people and organisations who live and work there – they know their communities best.
Through our Neighbourhood Fund, we’ll invest and build long-term partnerships in up to 15 hyper-local areas in England and Wales, where there are higher numbers of children and young people involved in crime and violence.
In each of these areas we’ll aim to understand the problems the community faces, then co-design, deliver and evaluate solutions that are both evidence-informed and responsive to their local needs.
