Not In Our Community – Hull Safeguarding Update
Earlier this year, Hull Safeguarding shared their Summer 2022 update, where they launched their new film for teachers, youth workers and other professionals, to show how they can use education to identify, prevent and disrupt grooming and child exploitation.
Within that report NIOC Update report – Oct 22 they also advised of their new offer of funded in-person sessions* for schools and youth clubs. This started as a pilot phase for Summer 2022 and, due to its success, has been extended to run until March 2023.
Their latest report has been designed as both an update, and also as a promotional tool, for that work.
Looking ahead, Jonathan Evison, Police and Crime Commissioner for Humberside, is committed to improving education and support for young people, preventing them being impacted by crime.
More information on this can be found in his Police and Crime Plan (p13 and p16).
They have ambitious plans for this area of their work. Whilst it was important for this pilot phase of delivery to take place, they do accept that a longer-term solution needs to be available; if they are truly to achieve ‘early intervention’, their impact needs to be consistent and sustainable, year-on-year, for the young people of the East Riding, Hull, North and North East Lincolnshire. They look forward to updating you in the coming months as this work starts to further build in pace and momentum.
