Merseyside Violence Reduction Partnership Launches New Well-Equipped Website

The Merseyside Violence Reduction Partnership Launches Their New Well-Equipped Website

The Merseyside Violence Reduction Partnership has launched their new website, making it easier for communities to find out more about its vital work to prevent and reduce serious violence across the region.


The new and improved www.merseysidevrp.com website offers a fresh, clean, engaging look, easier navigation, and enhanced tools for booking training being delivered by the Merseyside Violence Reduction Partnership (MVRP).


Designed and built by Liverpool digital agency, Connect Internet Solutions, the new user-friendly website will be a key tool for raising awareness of the work of the MVRP and helping to increase communication through an enhanced online presence.


The site provides vital information to communities across the Liverpool City Region about the MVRP’s aims and objectives and importantly, how it leads, supports, and funds a wide range of project and initiatives across the region, all with the single aim of reducing and preventing violence.


Designed to be neurodiverse-friendly with a muted, pastel colour palette and more white space to reduce cognitive load, the new site offers news, blogs, and a host of information for use by the public, professionals, and educators, offering clear signposting to a wide-range of resources. The website also has a “hide site” button which is always visible for safety.


The homepage includes a regularly updated panel featuring the top four news, events and blog articles, as well as easy-to-navigate links to all the projects the MVRP delivers across five key overarching themes – early years, education, whole-family, health and preventing offending. It also makes it easier to find out about the MVRP’s strategy and aims, its research and the evaluation of the projects it delivers.


Merseyside’s Police Commissioner Emily Spurrell said: 'Merseyside’s Violence Reduction Partnership is intervening in a positive way to help young people and families, prevent violence and make our communities safer and stronger, and the launch of this new website is designed to help more people find out about their vital work.'


The Commissioner added: 'The new site is much easier and faster to use, it looks great, and it provides a wealth of resources that can be used by families and professionals, all focused on reducing and stopping violence and building brighter futures. I’d encourage everyone to go online, take a look, and find out more about the MVRP.'


Temporary Director of the MVRP, Supt Georgie Garvey, said: 'Our goal is to put a stop to violence, so we want as many people as possible to find out about the projects and programmes we’re running in their communities and the difference they are making.'


The Superintendent added: 'Our new-look website will be a key tool in helping us achieve that, increasing our communication with the communities we serve and making it easier for them to learn about our aims, progress and achievements.'


Superintendent Garvey, said: 'I’m thrilled that the new site really reflects our work – and with more content still to come, I hope people find it a valuable and helpful resource.'
