Vulnerability Communications Toolkit 

Published: 02/06/2020

This toolkit is to support partners in amplifying Greater Manchester-wide messaging in relation to how we are working together to keep people safe, particularly those residents who are more at risk of domestic abuse, exploitation, and other crimes that affect the more vulnerable in our communities.

With families spending more time at home, there is an increased risk of incidents such as domestic abuse towards both children and adults. Support which has previously been in place has changed for many, and is potentially inaccessible for some.

The key audiences include victims and survivors, their families and friends and neighbours, children and young people who may be witnesses or perpetrators, and perpetrators themselves.

Thank you for your support.
