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.

Partnership Team Building Day ….

The Partnership staff enjoyed a team building day on the 3rd October  – with some great activities including  time at Cotswold Wildlife Park, afternoon tea and a ghost tour.   The Partnership team is spread far and wide, delivering services across the whole of the Thames Valley, so this was a rare chance for everyone to get together, catch up and share ideas.  We’re even discovering some new skills within the team …. youngest recruit Jamie reveals hidden talents outside his finance role….. goat whispering …!



A visit by the Mayor!

Partnership staff  were delighted to welcome the Mayor of Buckingham, Jon Harvey, who took time out of his busy schedule to visit our offices in Chilton  earlier this week.  We are grateful for his interest in our work and his encouraging words in his blog.

Supporting PACE Aylesbury


Well Done Jo & Helen!

Partnership  colleagues Jo and Helen survived their 18 mile sponsored walk from Dunstable Downs to Wendover on the weekend, in aid of the PACE charity.  Between them they raised over £300 for this great charity.  PACE provides first class education, therapy and support for children aged 0-18 with cerebral palsy, related sensory motor disorders and development delay, and support and guidance for their families.


Partnership win bid to offer new Thames Valley wide service!

We are delighted to announce that the Partnership has been successful in a recent tender to the Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner  for a new provision – the Emotional Support and Advocacy Service for victims across the Thames Valley.  The two year contract sits well with and complements our other victims’ programmes (such as the work of the Restorative Justice team) and means we will be one of the main providers of victims’ services in the Thames Valley.  This will be a major new strand of the work for the Partnership and we are delighted to have been selected and very excited to be developing this very important service which will commence in April. For a full press release by the Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner Thames Valley click here.
