Vulnerability and violent crime interventions

Evaluations of measures aimed at reducing vulnerability and violent crime, including implications for practice.

First published

The interventions on this page were independently evaluated to test their effectiveness at reducing vulnerability and violent crime, as part of the vulnerability and violent crime programme (VVCP).

The interventions focus on:

  • gangs and youth violence
  • vulnerability and early intervention
  • vulnerable children and child protection
  • risk assessment and management
  • county lines
  • child sexual abuse and exploitation

The interventions were selected for evaluation through a call for practice, with police forces in England and Wales nominating their most promising local initiatives.

The VVCP is funded by the Home Office police transformation fund. It began in 2018 and is run in partnership with the National Police Chiefs' Council (NPCC). The programme is now in its third and final phase, which focuses on county lines and child sexual abuse and exploitation.
