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

Communities That Care is an innovative Neighbourhood Watch led project that aims to make sure that all older people in the Aylesbury Vale area have access to community based support from trusted local people that enables them to protect themselves against fraudsters and helps to make them much 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 local area and help prevent misery and financial impact that fraud can have on vulnerable members of your community, please come along to one of the initial training sessions that have been organised for the morning or afternoon of 22 May 2019.

This free training is offered to existing Neighbourhood Watch co-ordinators and new volunteers in Aylesbury Vale to give you the skills, knowledge and resources to confidently engage and deliver fraud prevention advice to older members of your local communities. Volunteers will also have the opportunity to access further training should you so wish,  to equip you to offer emotional and practical support to older 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 provide, voluntary and community organisations and many others, who, together with the Neighbourhood Watch Network, will provide  volunteers with ongoing support and resources.

The initial training workshops will take place on Friday 22 March 2019 at the Gateway Centre, Gateway Road, Aylesbury,  HP19  8FF.  The morning session is 10am- 12:30pm and the afternoon sessions is 1pm - 3:30pm. Both sessions include refreshments and volunteers will be given a resource pack to take away with them. Speakers include the National Trading Standards Scams Team, a local NatWest Community Banker, an inspirational project volunteer and the Neighbourhood Watch Network project lead.
