Thames Valley Partnership
‘protecting victims, supporting offenders and their families’
The Thames Valley Partnership works in partnership with the statutory, private and voluntary sectors to provide long-term sustainable solutions to the problems of crime and social exclusion. We work to protect victims and reintegrate offenders. Our strength is in collaborative working and integrated approaches across sectors, particularly linking Criminal Justice services to voluntary sector and Local Authority providers.
Our broad spectrum of work includes programmes around the needs of families of offenders, work in the field of domestic abuse, support for victims, restorative justice, community cohesion, mental health issues, early interventions & initiatives around young people and arts related projects.

The dissemination event for Women at the HeArt was held during February at Meadowbrook College in Oxford and attended by a range of partners who were involved in the project and those who were interested to find out more about using creativity with vulnerable women. The Women at the HeArt exhibition remains open until March 18th at Meadowbrook College.
Alison Leverett-Morris presented the Evaluation Report and concluded that
“Through creative arts processes, Women at the HeArt enabled vulnerable women, support staff and artists to develop new skills, gain confidence and experience a deep sense of personal growth and achievement in both personal and/or professional lives.”

The Commissioner’s Policing Excellence awards run each year - TecSOS was entered for the Technology award last autumn - being shortlisted in October and invited to the London ceremony on 21st January. The citation acknowledged the difference that TecSOS has made to the lives of over 1,000 victims in London and also praised the way in which people had been brought together from different business areas to design and deliver TecSOS. The project is running successfully in all 32 London Boroughs and more than 1,000 Police Officers have now been trained. TecSOS is very much ‘business as usual’ now for the Met and the Partnership delivers a training input on both the Community Safety and Sexual Offence Investigation courses.
Please contact: firstname.lastname@example.org for further information on TecSOS.
We are delighted to announce that, following an assessment by the Mentoring and Befriending Foundation, New Leaf has been awarded their Approved Provider Standard quality mark. The APS logo is a national quality standard mark which is recognised by funders and commissioners as evidence of safe and competent practice. For a project such as New Leaf, it is the equivalent of an Oscar!
We are currently looking for a self employed sessional Volunteer Coordinator who will be responsible for recruiting, training and supervising volunteers. For further information please see the Volunteer Co-ordinator Vacancy.
