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.

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.
