The webinar looked at how alternative approaches to data analysis and multi-agency working can help those involved in tackling serious violence.


Since their inception in 2019, VRUs have spearheaded a change in approach to fighting serious violence by fostering collaboration among 20 Police Force Areas. This strategic partnership approach integrates data analysis, community engagement, and evidence-based interventions to tackle the root causes of violence.


The outcomes from VRUs are encouraging - a statistically significant reduction in severe violence incidents according to the 2023 Home Office's Violence Reduction Units (VRUs) evaluation.


Hosted by MV's David Fairhurst, our panel included: 

  • Mark Powell, Chief Executive at Kent Council VRU 

  • Tom Davies, Chief Operating Officer at Xantura

  • Hannah Celia, Director at Xantura

  • Prof. Donna Hall, Non-Executive Director at Mutual Ventures
