The Vulnerability & Policing Futures Research Centre aims to understand how vulnerabilities are produced, exacerbated and addressed by policing.

The Centre explores how the police and other services can best work together to prevent and reduce vulnerabilities, such as exploitation by county lines drug networks, online child sexual victimisation, domestic abuse, modern slavery, mental illness and homelessness.

Our substantial programme of work enables us to produce robust evidence at the heart of debates about policing vulnerability.
