The VERU team will remain in place and continue to deliver on the fantastic work we have already built over recent years. I remain incredibly proud of the thoughtful, diverse group of experts from all walks of life that we have pulled together in the VERU and the change we continue to make to prevent violence and exploitation in the county.
Cara Gavin, currently the early intervention project manager for the Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner (OPCC), will be taking on the VERU manager post in the interim. The senior leadership team in the OPCC will be supporting Cara and the wider work of the VERU more during this period.
This is an exciting time for the VERU, with two major projects due to launch later this month which we will provide further details of in our next newsletter.
