When communities are affected by violence often the key to sustainable solutions can often be found by speaking to local residents about the underlying causes of crime, working with rather than deciding for them. Six areas are receiving investment across Greater Manchester and will deliver community led pilots. Working in a place based way these initiatives are about learning what are the priorities in each community and co-designing services with local people that will benefit their community.
The six areas are:
Manchester covering Moss Side, Rusholme and Hulme
Bolton covering New Bury
Salford covering Ordsall and Langworthy
Oldham covering Glodwick
