One of the key objectives of the VRU communications strategy is to raise awareness of how Greater Manchester Violence Reduction Unit (VRU) is working together with partners and the community to address serious violence and its underlying causes. This project is a partnership between the VRU and NAS, which aims to prevent exploitation amongst a specific group of young people


The VRU awards £7,800 to the National Autistic Society (NAS) to produce a video related to the exploitation of young people who are autistic. The video will consist of a combination of animation (video game style) and talking heads of stakeholders from GM, as well as parental, lived experience and young persons’ voice.

The NAS will use the video as a tool to communicate with their network.
