CPI Tackle Violence in Stoke-on-Trent
Posted by: susan geist on July 23, 2015
CPI are delighted to announce that they have been awarded the contract to undertake what is likely to be the UK’s first ever Violence Needs Assessment. This is the first time a needs assessment has been commissioned to look into the issue of violence and CPI will be delivering this project on behalf of Stoke-on-Trent City Council.
This follows the successful completion of CPI’s previous project with Stoke-on-Trent Safer City Partnership to conduct an extensive literature review regarding violence, which sought to understand the different types of violence that constitute interpersonal violence and the risk factors for victims and perpetrators of these kinds of violence. The literature review examined the consequences and impact of violence for victims, perpetrators, families, communities and society as a whole.
Along with their vast experience in the field, CPI will bring a life-course perspective to the needs assessment project, understanding that the needs assessment must address a range of practitioners, looking at the problem as a socio-cultural issue with multiple points of origin.
The project is due to be completed in late September 2015 and CPI are pleased to be able to contribute towards enhancing the safety of the Stoke-on-Trent community.
