Abstract

This report presents the findings from the first phase of qualitative research work focused on serious violence in Nottingham City and Nottinghamshire. This first phase of work focuses on the evaluation of initiatives to tackle serious violence and to better support those traumatised or otherwise impacted by serious violence.
The report presents the findings of four process evaluations of initiatives commissioned by the Nottingham City and Nottinghamshire Violence Reduction Unit (NNVRU), including: The Mentors in Violence Prevention Programme (MVP), the Juno Women’s Aid intervention for children exposed to domestic violence, the GROWTH project (Gangs, Radicalisation, Organised crime, Wellbeing, Tackling drugs, and Holistic approaches) delivered by Al-Hurraya, and the Base 51 hosted Evolution Project. Findings are presented from qualitative research and secondary data analysis for each project, and overarching themes are also identified across the four projects.
There is much that is positive and that is progressing well across the four individual projects engaged in this qualitative evaluation, and the objectives of each initiative also feel well aligned to the wider strategic goals of the Nottingham City and Nottinghamshire Violence Reduction Unit (NNVRU).
