Welcome to the Connected website
If you’re working to reduce gun
crime in your community, then the Connected website
is the resource you need.
and knife crime, and street gangs, cause tremendous
harm to our communities. I am very aware that
there is a good deal of excellent work carried
out by people on the front line who are working
their hardest to counteract the damage caused
by these tragic events. Too often, these people
receive only modest credit, but our debt to them
is boundless. I would personally like to thank
you all for the work you are doing in communities
across the country to tackle gun crime, knife
crime and gang problems.
Law enforcement and legislation alone cannot
address the wrongs of this underlying culture.
It has been over a year since the Connected website
went live and we remain committed to supporting
you in your work to fight crime in your community.
I welcome all of you who are visiting this website
and hope that you find it useful.
Our Connected Fund continues to provide financial
support for small community groups. The work of
your organisations, running recreational and sports
activities, mentoring projects, educational schemes,
and supporting victims and witnesses, is invaluable.
I wish you luck and hope we can continue to work
together to improve people’s lives and make
our communities safer.
