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.

Despite the recent downpours, Partnership staff still managed to dodge the rain and enjoy a social gathering at The Pheasant Pub in Brill. Fun was had by all and apart from the excellent food the team got the chance to demonstrate their skill (or not !!) with a game of Aunt Sally, the traditional English throwing game in which players throw sticks or battens at a ‘dolly’).
Engaging with creative activity has been shown to have a positive impact on self-esteem and self-image, often steering participants towards more positive life decisions. Our Modelling Change project uses the creative arts to engage and empower girls aged 16 to 19 in the Oxfordshire area, through the agencies and organisations that support them. Skilled artist facilitators lead a mix of arts based activities and workshops on a weekly basis. Sessions continue until Spring 2016 and participants can join at any time – please contact Judy Munday for more information and a referral form firstname.lastname@example.org
