Are you ready to help older people fight back against fraud?

Alert message sent 04/11/2019 20:19:00

Information sent on behalf of Neighbourhood Watch


Communities That Care is an innovative Thames Valley Neighbourhood Watch led project, that aims to make sure that all older and more vulnerable people have access to community based support from trusted local people to enable them to protect themselves against fraudsters and ensure they are less likely to become victims of these distressing crimes.
 
If you would like to make a real difference to the lives of older people in your community and help prevent the misery and financial impact that fraud can have on vulnerable members of the community, please come along to a volunteer training workshop on 18th November 2019 at 10.00am – 1.00pm in Newbury.
 
This free training is offered to existing Neighbourhood Watch coordinators and new volunteers, to give you the skills, knowledge and resources to confidently engage and deliver fraud prevention advice to members of your local community.  Volunteers will also have the opportunity to access further training, if required, to offer emotional and practical support to people that have been affected by fraud and signpost them to relevant local support agencies if further help is needed."
 
This project is supported by a range of other local agencies, including Thames Valley Police, Trading Standards, Banks, training providers, voluntary and community organisations and many others, who, together with the Neighbourhood Watch Network, will provide volunteers with ongoing support and resources.
 
The volunteer training workshop will take place on Monday 18th November 2019 from 10.00am – 1.00pm at St Francis de Sales Catholic Church, Warren Lodge, Warren Road, Newbury, Berkshire, RG14 6NH.
