GMP are embarking on Right Care, Right Person (RCRP) which aims to ensure the most appropriate agency respond to those with mental health and wider welfare needs that are not best met with a policing response.
This is a national approached (underpinned by a national Partnership Agreement) that all police forces are required to implement this year.
GMP have been working at both a strategic and tactical level with local authority officers, NHS trusts, mental health agencies and others to develop pathways and solutions.
This secondment is critical to the development of these practical pathways and solutions with partners.
GMP have postponed the initial ‘go live’ date to the Autumn to provide more time for partner preparation. The extension of this secondment will contribute to this preparation to the benefit of GMP, partner agencies and ultimately the public.


£18,000 be provided to GMP as a 50% contribution towards a 6-month extension of a secondment from the GMCA to GMP to support the delivery of Right Care: Right Person (RC:RP) for both GMP and partner agencies.

This is for a period of 6 months commencing 30 June and ending on 31 December 2024.
