About the host organisation

Hosted by: TLC & Jigsaw Homes - STRIVE Project
Organisation Profile: Our award-winning STRIVE initiative is a partnership with Greater Manchester Police and The Jigsaw Group, commissioned by GMCA and funded by The Deputy Mayor of Greater Manchester. STRIVE is an intensive project which recruits local volunteers to speak with people after incidents where the police have attended but no crime has been logged. The volunteers then support individuals, couples and families, signposting them to further support. This intervention supports local community relationships and ensures people who would potentially not receive any support, have access to the help they need.
