Feel Safe, Keep Safe
This is a hate crime initiative aimed at addressing bullying, raising awareness of hate crime. It is a practical way of helping vulnerable people feel safe and enjoy the town centre and local communities. The scheme has achieved national recognition through the shortlisting in the LGC awards in the ‘Community Involvement’ category. In addition through the continued support of local businesses and organisations and Warrington Borough Council the scheme is regarded as one of the most successful across the North West and North East of England.
This initiative aims to celebrate the excellent work that our Warrington schools are already doing to raise awareness around anti-bullying and reporting hate crime.
It would be really appreciated if staff can support pupils to recall and record relevant work that has taken place and is happening in your school.
Ideally we would hope that a Bullying and Hate Crime champion (or two) could be chosen to raise awareness and represent your school.
Following receipt of your completed questionnaire we will work as a partnership to decide if you are working at Gold, Silver or Bronze level.
Everyone has the right to feel safe and keep safe, whether this be at home with family and friends, the work place with colleagues or when out and about in the community.
We take safeguarding seriously as an organisation ensuring we have in place robust internal policies and practices as well as proving advocacy services to support individuals through safeguarding processes. Working collaboratively with safeguarding professionals and other service providers in order to keep people safe from harm is essential.
Advocates can provide support to individuals through any safeguarding processes, ensuring their views and wishes are heard, that they remain at the centre of the process and that their rights respected.
