Here is the June edition of the Safer Future Communities newsletter with updates and news of work, and relevant information over the last month in the Criminal Justice world.
Over the last month, the 4 main VCSE sub-groups of the network; Reducing Reoffending; Victims Alliance Services, Violence Against Women and Girls (VAWG), and Gangs & Serious Youth Violence, have each held meetings focusing on the Police and Crime priorities in their respective areas of interests.
The Deputy Mayor, Sophie Linden, had a consultation engagement meeting with the Gangs & Serious Youth Violence sub-group on the Mayor’s Knife Crime Strategy.
It is essential that the Voluntary, Community and Social Enterprise sector is actively involved in driving the pan-London criminal justice agenda, and be engaged in MOPAC’s work on the Police and Crime Plan over the next 4 years. If your organisation falls into any of these groups, but have not been involved in them, please contact Ade Fashade at LVSC to find out more.
LVSC have also had positive meetings with the MOPAC Hate Crime Online Hub, who are keen to work closely with the sector to ensure wider reach for the service, the Pan-London Restorative Justice network, and the MOPAC Evidence & Insight Team, to keep abreast of crime trends in London to help identify gaps in service provision in the community.
