Strategic Partnership

We are a strategic partner for one of the leading anti-knife crime charities in the UK, The Ben Kinsella Trust. We are using our expertise to provide practical solutions, including virtual reality immersive technology, to help fight the ongoing battle with youth knife crime in Britain. Along with our joint ventures - Shared Services Connected Limited and NHS Shared Business Services – we have made a commitment to the Trust through donations, expertise, advice and guidance to support its valuable work.

The rising rate of knife crime on our streets is deeply concerning, and we believe technology can help support the fight against it.  By utilising the digital expertise and knowledge within Sopra Steria we are enabling the Ben Kinsella Trust to focus on their key objective of driving better outcomes for at risk youths through education and community engagement.

How do you embrace innovation in critical situations?

Police, Fire, Ambulance, Maritime and Coastguard, CNI and RNLI crews on the frontline require information and communications technology that makes a fundamental difference to their response times and investigations. But introducing digital innovation into situations where proven reliability is fundamental is a real challenge. Equally, digital transformation is needed in back office environments to enhance operational effectiveness – but how do you achieve this in the face of shrinking budgets and central government cuts?
