Serious Violence Duty

The Serious Violence Duty makes councils and local services work together to share information and target interventions to prevent and reduce serious violence.

The duty places several requirements upon local areas, including agreeing a local partnership arrangement to lead on the duty, agreeing a definition of serious violence, having consistent data sharing, analytical processes to produce a Strategic Needs Assessment, and production of a Strategy to set out how the duty will be implemented locally.
