We have just started a new project called ‘Just Say Know’. It is a follow on from the successful Be Aware Be Safe Project.
It is funded by Merseyside Police and Crime Commissioners Crime Prevention Fund. Over the next few months we will be looking at risky situations and how to stay safe. In the summer we will be taking workshops out into the community to give people more knowledge about risky situations and how to say no to them.
So far we have recruited a steering group and had 3 meetings. Yesterday, police officers from the Merseyside Financial Crime Unit, Jackie Long and Donna Montgomery came to see us. We talked about financial abuse and Jackie’s advice for us was,” Don’t sign up for anything in the street” and “if your ever in doubt that someone is genuine, then Just say No”.

Phil said,” It is really good information and we need to let other people no all about it”
Lesley said, ” I really enjoyed it was good and I want to know more ”» Back to News
