Manchester VRU


SHiFT Manchester launched in October 2023 when the Lead Guide, Rosalyn Oladipo, took up her post, with the Guides joining her in November.  The Practice has a particular focus on reducing the use of custody for children and an interest in improving outcomes in this area by preventing the need for custodial remands and sentences through intensive levels of community support and improving resettlement outcomes as young people transition from custody to the community, reducing the need for recall. The Practice will work alongside some of the most vulnerable children from across the City to break the destructive cycle of crime and influence system change, with a particular focus on challenging disproportionality.
