Greater Manchester Violence Reduction Strategy 2023

Closed 11 Aug 2023

Opened 14 Jul 2023


We are finding out what people who live, work and study in Greater Manchester think about violence, and the impact violence may have had on them. Greater Manchester is made up of 10 boroughs: Bolton, Bury, Manchester, Oldham, Rochdale, Salford, Stockport, Tameside, Trafford, and Wigan.

The survey should take about 15-20 minutes to complete.

We are asking some information about you, such as your age, ethnicity and working status. This is so that we can look for patterns in the data, but none of the information you give today will be able to identify you and your personal information will not be shared with anyone. There will be no follow up on any answers that you give today.

Some questions will allow you the opportunity to type your own response. Please make sure that your answers do not contain any personally identifiable information about yourself or any other individuals as these answers may then be subject to data protection legislation. Further information about how GMCA use personal data can be found here: GMCA Privacy Notice.

Thank you for taking part. You are helping to shape the work across the whole of Greater Manchester.
