About Us

The Staffordshire & Stoke-on-Trent’s Violence Reduction Alliance (VRA) is a multi-agency partnership aiming to work together to strengthen the visibility, early identification and partnership response to prevent violence and its associated harms. We work in partnership with a broad range of agencies to understand the causes and consequences of violence, focusing on early intervention and prevention and informed by evidence and evaluation of interventions.


We lead and support a range of projects that make a real difference to people’s lives. Our projects aim to prevent and reduce violence across our five priority areas: primary prevention, secondary prevention, tertiary prevention, enforcement and criminal justice and attitudinal change. 



We have developed a range of media campaigns to support, advise and educate against violence, including violence against women and girls (VAWG). 

We have created partner packs and other material to help organisations engage in supporting the campaigns.


We are taking a partnership and inclusion approach to bringing about positive changes in communities throughout Stoke-on-Trent and Staffordshire. These projects are created or selected based on understanding and needs of local communities, brought by those who are living and working within them. You can find out more about our plans and initiatives to reduce violence in our Violence Reduction Strategy.
