‘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.

Don’t forget to visit the new Thames Valley Restorative Justice Service (TVRJS) website!
The Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC) for Thames Valley, Anthony Stansfeld, is pleased to announce that Thames Valley Partnership have been awarded a three year contract to provide a Victim-led Restorative Justice (RJ) Service across the Thames Valley.
Thames Valley Partnership is responsible for the Thames Valley Restorative Justice Service (TVRJS) and has 15 years’ experience of championing and delivering RJ services in the region. TVRJS will be working alongside Victim Support.
Patsy Townsend, Director of Thames Valley Partnership said: “We are delighted. This is excellent news for victims.
“It is proven that 85% of victims who participate in RJ are satisfied with the outcome, 78% would recommend it to others and 72% feel a sense of closure and are more able to ‘get on with their lives’.
“We look forward to working with the Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner in developing this new service which will provide many more Thames Valley victims with opportunities to recover from their experiences of crime.”
