A HUGE WELL DONE to our Road Ahead team who were short listed for the High Sheriff of Merseyside Crimebeat Competition.
The High Sheriff of Merseyside Mrs Abila Pointing MBE DL recognises all of the good work that young people in Merseyside do to combat crime and hate crime and held an event at Merseyside Police Headquarters to thank and award people for all their hard work.
The Road Ahead are a group of young people aged 18-30 who have a learning disability, who are peer trainers to other young people with a learning disability and are role models. Part of the training is around keeping yourself safe in the house, at the cash point, on the bus and in the street. We also give out ‘E’ Cards – which stands for an Emergency Card. People have an E Card which they carry with them and if they have a problem they can show it to a police officer who can support them in the best way to help them. So far we have trained 35 young people. Co-Chair of the Road Ahead said “It was fantastic to be here . It is great that we made it this far and the High Sheriff recognised our work.”
Thank you to the High Sheriff of Merseyside and Merseyside Police who organised such a wonderful evening.
Good Luck to MD Productions Emotions Project it has been chosen to go through to the national Crimebeat competition, we hope they win. They go to London for the final on the 11th March.
