VRU empower young people at Element

The South Yorkshire Violence Reduction Unit is based at Shepcote Lane in Sheffield and is working across South Yorkshire to prevent and reduce violence.

In South Yorkshire, the VRU is taking a public health approach to prevent and reduce violence.  This means that the VRU looks at the causes of violence, working in partnership to stop violence before it starts, halt the progression of violence once it has already begun and provide ways out for people already entrenched in violent behaviour

The VRU fund Element so that young people can develop their own solutions to local problems.

John Francis, Project Manager, said

The support from the VRU has invaluable in allowing Element to empowering young people to make a real difference for the people of South Yorkshire.  

Case Studies about our work with the VRU are due here in April 2022.
