Connect launch new website for Merseyside Violence Reduction Partnership

Liverpool digital agency Connect Internet Solutions has designed, built and is hosting a new website for the Merseyside Violence Reduction Partnership.

The Partnership is a coalition of community organisations, including Merseyside Police, Merseyside Fire and Rescue, local government, National Probation Service, Public Health, the Department of Work and Pensions and the county’s Youth Offending Service, as well as health and education professionals, community leaders and other key partners. The central aim of the Partnership is to work to prevent and reduce serious violence in Merseyside, focussing on intervening in a positive way to help young people and families before birth and into young adulthood.

The Merseyside Violence Reduction Partnership’s new website is a key tool to help them raise awareness, increase communication through an enhanced online presence and to help them ensure that community is at the heart of everything they do.

The site provides vital information to the community about its aims and objectives and importantly, how it leads and supports a wide range of initiatives across Merseyside, all with the single aim of reducing and preventing violence. Information about the Partnership’s projects and how the public can get involved is here: The new site has a fresh and engaging design with clear signposting to available resources and training. The site has been purposefully designed to be neurodiverse-friendly with a muted colour palette and more white space to reduce cognitive load. Visitors can access news, blogs and a host of information for use by the public, professionals and educators.

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 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.”

Connect’s Managing Director, Janet Symes says:

“The Violence Reduction Partnership is a vital resource across Merseyside, providing much needed assistance in the effort to make communities and families safer. We are really proud of the work we have done for them and the part we have helped to play in their incredible work.”
