Wolverhampton’s draft Serious Violence and Exploitation Strategy 2019-2022 reflects the national shift towards tackling all forms of serious violence and exploitation in a holistic manner.

Where previously the city had developed individual strategies for each strand of exploitation; this strategy robustly addresses all related issues together rather than individually.

Recognising that offending behaviour is changing and becoming more complex the draft strategy aims to tackle the root causes of violence and exploitation using a strengthened partnership approach to provide relevant early interventions and preventative measures and striking a balance with enforcement action.

The consultation on the strategy is now open and can be found here.
