, providing digital learning solutions to public sector clients to create learning that unlocks workforce potential.
Tracy joins me today to share details of her work for Manchester Council, how they became a leading ASB service, the key partners that they worked with to tackle antisocial behaviour in the community, and how they built and nurtured relationships with their partners to improve outcomes in their area. She explains why she was attracted to working in the field of antisocial behaviour and how her career has developed over the years. Tracy also discusses some of the situations that she saw which led to women being abused and the factors that contributed to that abuse being widespread in particular communities.
“The key point, in terms of partnership and multi-agency working, is information sharing, but it's also about maximizing resources. We're all there to deliver shared outcomes.”- Tracy Jones
