Kelly Laycock
Senior Programme Delivery Manager

Kelly graduated Leeds Metropolitan University with a Ba Hons in Sociology in 2004 and the following year began work with the then West Yorkshire Police Authority, undertaking various roles across Business and Administration, Engagement and finally Statutory Partnerships and Delivery. During 2014 – 2016, Kelly acted as the Domestic Abuse/Violence lead within the OPCC, establishing the ongoing West Yorkshire Domestic and Sexual Abuse Board and worked with partners to commission a West Yorkshire Domestic Abuse Perpetrator Programme.

Having supported the early implementation of the VRU, Kelly was seconded into the Unit as a Programme Delivery Manager in November 2019, having specific responsibility for the West Yorkshire wide portfolio of interventions. Following a promotion opportunity in 2020, Kelly was successful in becoming a Senior Programme Delivery Manager. Since then she worked closely with colleagues from the West Yorkshire Health and Care Partnership on the A&E programme and more recently the Adversity Trauma and Resilience programme. Within the VRU Kelly works across a number of other priority areas such as Education Inclusion, Criminal Justice and Violence against Women and Girls.
