NW training for Deliveroo drivers helping to look after the community

Alert message sent 10/06/2021 22:03:00

Information sent on behalf of Neighbourhood Watch

Here is an interesting project developed by National Neighbourhood Watch.

Deliveroo riders carried out a vital role in their local communities during the pandemic and are well-placed to spot any concerns in the neighbourhoods in which they work and live.

Deliveroo’s new Full Life Campaign which covers all of the company’s community initiatives and aims to use its unique network of riders, restaurants and customers as a force for good in the local communities in which it operates across the UK.
Deliveroo announces a new UK-wide partnership with Neighbourhood Watch, offering a training programme to riders to help keep our communities safe.
The training created by Neighbourhood Watch and verified by the Metropolitan Police, will cover six topics:
●          Rider vehicle safety
●          Spotting the signs: Street harassment and female safety
●          Spotting the signs: Domestic abuse
●          Handling confrontation and bystander training
●          Spotting the signs: Modern slavery and Human Trafficking
●          Spotting the signs: County Lines and Drug Dealing
Deliveroo had a successful partnership with the NSPCC last year, where Deliveroo riders were trained to spot and report the signs of child abuse. The programme saw a huge amount of interest, with over 7,000 riders completing the training. Riders across the country promoted the NSPCC Helpline number on their delivery bags, encouraging members of the public concerned about the welfare of a child to seek professional advice and support.
Kind regards
