Logo of Greater Manchester PoliceMultilingual Manchester student volunteers have been working in collaboration with Greater Manchester Police to improve communication with victims of crime.

The volunteer group gathered public feedback on letters issued by Greater Manchester Police (GMP) in the aftermath of a crime, and reflected this feedback in redrafted letters. Approaching residents from a wide range of backgrounds, the group’s aim was to ensure that the new Victim of Crime letters used accessible language to communicate with Manchester’s diverse public.

The activity was facilitated by Multilingual Manchester in collaboration with GMP’s Neighbourhoods, Confidence and Equality Team.

A report on the activity is now available to read at the link below:
