What Do We Do?
Supporting Northamptonshire Police
Goodwill Solutions CIO supports Northamptonshire Police by providing an in-kind space for the Police to use in three different programmes:
Community Initiative to Reduce Violence
A gang intervention programme to help reduce violence and drugs associated with gangs.
Early Intervention Hub
Bringing Police and County Council teams working together to identify families in difficulty at an early stage and step-in to offer support.
Working with offenders to repair lost or stolen bicycles for community use.
Goodwill Solutions has a positive and uplifting atmosphere of change and growth which inspires both the officers who work here and those we are seeking to support. Northamptonshire Police continues to receive significant support from Goodwill Solutions.
It is down to Goodwill Solutions support of Northamptonshire Police and its mission that allows CIRV and the early intervention team to operate in a neutral space where agencies and staff from a variety of backgrounds can operate under one roof as a true multi-agency team.
