March 2024

Welcome to the March Communities Bulletin.  

This bulletin will cover updates on crime and anti-social behaviour, mental health, armed forces, domestic abuse, health and more.


International Women's Day

The Communities Team attended the International Women’s Day event at Beeston Youth and Community Centre. Much networking was done, which included sampling some of the amazing culinary delights on offer! During the event, many crime prevention resources were handed out, including personal alarms, purse bells, card minders and of course pens! The event was extremely successful and very helpful for many whom attended.

Towards the end of March some of the Communities Team will be attending the National Justice Museum with Broxtowe Women's Project. This is for a series of information events for partners to raise awareness about community safety, including anti-social behaviour, violence against women and girls (VAWG) and knife crime.  


Ask For Angela

image

On Friday 15 March and Saturday 16 March our Licensing Officer Sarah Steventon went out to local businesses to promote safety. 

Sarah spoke to students and women to advise them on the Ask For Angela campaign, the strut safe campaign, and handed out resource bags containing spiking straws, personal alarms, purse bells and other information which might help with safety during the evenings around Beeston. After a successful event, we will now aim to approach other venues across the borough.

Don't Get Stung By Fraud

image

Fraudsters can use highly manipulative methods to get us when our defences are down. Nobody is immune from fraud. We can all be more alert to the risks, and we can all do more to protect ourselves. Did you know that fraud accounts for almost 40% of all crime. In just one year, 1 in 17 adults in England and Wales were victims of fraud. That’s nearly 3 million of us.

1 in 5 businesses were also a victim of fraud over a 3 year period. In other words, fraud is rife and it can happen to anyone.

Stop! Think Fraud


Learning Disability Showcase

image

Nearly 50 people attended an event focused on the health and wellbeing of people with a learning disability, which was described as ‘inspiring’, positive and informative’.

The sharing event was hosted by Clare Watson, Health Inequalities Lead at Nottingham West Primary Care Network (PCN) and Chloe Corden, Active Lifestyles Manager at
Liberty Leisure Limited (LLeisure). The aim was to share the learning from a year of prolonged listening at a series of health and wellbeing roadshows, to share actions already taken based on what they heard and to agree on ways to build on this work
collectively.

The roadshows were funded by a grant of £2,000 from Health Innovation East Midlands to Nottingham West PCN to engage with people living locally who have learning
disabilities – to see how local services could better support them to live more healthily.

General feedback from the roadshows was that people with learning disabilities want to be known, they want to be spoken to directly and involved in decision making that directly affects them, and that language is important – for example, one attendee said that people were ‘talking upside down language’ – where a negative result in health isn’t usually a bad thing but a positive result may be.

The attendees did some group work on the topics of health, education and training and physical activity, discussing the issues, barriers, solutions and who was best placed to lead on implementing specific changes.

PCN Clinical Director Ali Rounce thanked Clare and Chloe, and said: “Thank you to everyone who came today for what they brought, building a greater understanding.”
