Project 'pen-pics' that follow illustrate work completed in 2014/15 >>  

MERSEYSIDE VICTIMS OF CRIME RESEARCH - PHASE 2

>> MLR co-designed and helped to deliver engagement activities, to complement the more quantitative results gathered in Spring/Summer 2014 (see Phase 1 summary).

>> ‘Phase 2’ of the 2014/15 research included joint working with the PCC team and Connectives consultants to design and deliver Focus Groups/depth interviews with 121 victims of crime, a web survey and stakeholder presentation.

>> The Merseyside PCC Research 2014/15 webpage has access to all research outputs - access it here

 

 

WELLBEING ANALYSIS - ‘BEYOND GROWTH’ REPORT

>> MLR was commissioned in Spring 2014 to collect and analyse Liverpool City Region (LCR) wellbeing indicators, to look at ‘GDP and beyond’.

>> The data was used to underpin an LCR digest of wellbeing, launched at the International Festival of Business 2014 by the newly formed SERCH Centre at Liverpool Hope University. The SERCH report ‘Beyond Growth’ is here.

 

 

SHOWCASE EVENT ON OFFENDER HEALTH

>> An offender health event was held in Warrington in October 2014 to highlight the experiences of local service users, showcase service provider 'exemplars' and enable stakeholders to present and network - to ultimately hone commissioning ideas. Presentations are available here

>> The day was facilitated by representatives from MLR, Warrington Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG), Cheshire & Greater Manchester CRC, and Cheshire Constabulary. 

 

SCOPING DEMAND FOR VICTIM HEALTH ASSESSMENTS

>> The office of Cheshire Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC) commissioned a scoping exercise to gauge the demand and requirements of local partners regarding victims of crime health needs assessments (HNAs).

>> We found a pan-Cheshire appetite for further information and intelligence - however data sharing and data system barriers exist, together with value-for-money concerns, which require a creative commissioning response to meet demand.

 

'TOUR DE FRANCE' HERITAGE GRANT ANALYSIS

>> Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) commissioned analysis of Lottery grant distribution to enable a review of investment by HLF within the vicinity of the Tour de France (TDF) route, which began in Yorkshire in July 2014.

>> We found that over 49% (£219m) of all Lottery money invested in Yorkshire's heritage since 1994 is within a three-mile 'buffer' of the TDF routes. See 1 side summary (below) for more information. Our TDF project webpage is here
