The UK government’s recent commitment of £75 million towards establishing Violence Reduction Units (VRUs) in all areas marks a pivotal component of the broader £1.8 billion public sector productivity enhancement. This significant investment aims to empower local authorities and partners to collaboratively address and mitigate the underlying causes of violence. By integrating various agencies, including those in health, policing, education, and social services, VRUs are expected to develop and implement comprehensive strategies that tackle violence at its roots, promoting long-term community safety and well-being across the UK.
