Men Step Up

In November 2023, the South Yorkshire Violence Reduction Unit launched the first of its Violence Against Women and Girls communications campaigns. Called Men Step Up, this focused on positive male role models and behaviours, and the role that men can play in tackling this issue.

The Public Health Approach

The South Yorkshire Violence Reduction Unit takes a public health approach, aiming to work in partnership with all agencies working across it, so that we can target all levels of causation. We use the available data and evidence base to work to prevent violence across the whole spectrum of risk.
