The Hope Collective is a powerful partnership of cross-sector organisations with aligned values and a shared vision; to work together in a spirit of unity to create real change for young people and communities across the UK.
Formed originally to support the 20th anniversary legacy campaign for Damilola Taylor, the Hope Collective is driven by a shared purpose - to establish real change that enables UK's most vulnerable communities to be free from poverty, violence and discrimination. Through activity led by the Hope Collective, young people can discuss their thoughts and solutions on issues that affect them, their lives and their communities. The goal of the Hope Collective is to 'change the narrative' for young people and focus on solutions, not symptoms, and most importantly to focus on their hopes for the future.

This particular event is entitled “Reminagining Policing” and is being hosted by West Midlands Violence Reduction Partnership in collaboration with Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland VRU. The focus of the event is specifically to capture young people’s hopes and ambitions for the future of policing in the UK, which will be fed into a report presented to the next government following the election.


The Greater Manchester Violence Reduction Unit will make the following payments covering travel for 3 young people and one Manchester PRU Youth Justice Officer to accompany one of the young people to a Hope Hack event in Coventry. All travel is between Manchester Piccadilly and Coventry on 8th July 2024- standard return fare for all.
