One of the core aims of VRUs is to improve data sharing between those agencies who play a role in tackling serious violence, including the police, local authorities, Youth Offending Teams and the local NHS. VRUs are also required to obtain access to a wide range of data to construct their Strategic Needs Assessments and target their commissioned projects.
Through a programme of engagement with our partners, we are seeking to understand the current status of data sharing and the priority use cases that could be enabled by increasing/improving data sharing.
The result will be a comprehensive baseline and a collection of impactful case studies that illustrate how better access to data will help our partners and the VPP to prevent and reduce serious violence.
Our partners at the Humber and North Yorkshire Integrated Care Board are undertaking an initial exercise to inform the Humber VPP’s work in progressing data sharing locally.
