2021/22 Strategic Needs Assessment

Each year, Violence Reduction Units are asked by the Home Office to produce a Strategic Needs Assessment (SNA), which outlines the need for a Violence Reduction Unit and summarises the available evidence to be used throughout the year in commissioning, service delivery and problem solving.

We are pleased to be able to publish this years (2021/22) SNA, and promote its use across the Thames Valley as a resource.

This years SNA has been produced using PowerBI, and in the near future we hope to be able to publish an interactive version to our website that can be interrogated by a user and selections made on the data to help understand more about smaller areas. Whilst we work on this interactive version, a non-interactive PDF is published below.

If you have any questions about the SNA, or want to chat about data and how it may help us reduce violence across the Thames Valley, please contact us.
