A Strategic Needs Analysis (SNA) is a Home Office requirement for all Violence Reduction Units (VRU’s). Our SNA is an analytical product which analyses the incidence of serious violence across the Humber and the associated drivers. Our SNA provides the evidence base for shaping our response strategy and commissioning interventions.

Data will aim to identify the following:

  • Priority crime type(s)
  • Driver(s) of Serious Violence
  • Risk Factor(s)
  • People at risk
  • Hotspot location(s) and Hot-times

We will publish an executive summary of our SNA later in 2024.

Humber Learning Consortium (HLC), in conjunction with the Humber Violence Prevention Partnership (HVPP), has conducted a series of focus groups with a diverse range of young people from hotspot areas across the Humber sub-region. The areas were identified using data from our Strategic Needs Assessment (SNA).

These sessions aimed to identify young people’s perspectives about violent crime in their localities, asking questions such as:

• How safe do young people feel and the reasons why.

• How young people feel about their local area and community, including the support, activities, and facilities available to them.

• How young people feel about their future, their hopes, fears and what change they want to see.

Building on recent research by the Youth Endowment Fund that has provided a national picture, Humber Learning Consortium worked with the Humber VPP to build a more nuanced understanding of what it’s like for young people to be living in different parts of our area, recognising that not every place or young person is the same.

The full report - including an executive summary, an outline of the methodology and a summary of the findings - can be found here.

The cost of serious violence aims to provide an overview of the financial costs associated with serious violence in the Humber region. These costs can be split into two areas: the direct costs incurred by public sector organisations like the Criminal Justice System, Police, NHS, Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner for Humberside; and indirect costs by attributing a value to the reduced economic output resulting from being a victim of serious violence.

The cost in these products have been calculated using the below, methodologies:

  • ‘The economic and social costs of crime’ (Heeks et al. 2018), created by the Home Office.
  • The Economic and Social Costs of Violence on Merseyside (Bates et al. 2021), created by the Public Health Institute at Liverpool John Moores University, for the Merseyside Violence Reduction Partnership.
